United Arab Emirates lift health restrictions on July

Emirates customers have the possibility to travel to Dubai following the announcement last week that the city will be open to business and leisure visitors starting July 7.

The opening of the city cones with new air travel protocols that facilitate travel for UAE citizens, residents, and tourists while safeguarding the health and safety of its visitors and communities.

To this end, the company has implemented a comprehensive set of measures at every step of the customer journey to ensure their safety and that of its employees on the ground and in the air, including the distribution of complimentary hygiene kits containing masks, gloves, hand sanitizer, and antibacterial wipes.

Travel restrictions

The airline also reminds customers that worldwide travel restrictions remain in place, and travelers will only be accepted on flights if they comply with the eligibility and entry criteria requirements of their destination countries.

Additionally, according to EK, visitors to Dubai should hold an international health insurance policy covering illness from COV(D-19 for the duration of their stay.
