Dubai Joins UK Air Corridor

Dubai has been added to the UK Government’s travel exemption quarantine list from December 3rd.

That means Brits can now travel to one of the United Arab Emirates’ most popular holiday and business destinations without the threat of having to quarantine for 14-days upon return to the UK.

Issam Kazim, CEO of Dubai Corporation for Tourism and Commerce Marketing (Dubai Tourism), said; “We are delighted to welcome British visitors back to the city from December 3rd. Since opening our borders on July 7th a key priority for us has been to safeguard the health and wellbeing of our residents and guests in Dubai.

"We hope these stringent measures and the news of this travel exemption quarantine list, will give confidence to British visitors to visit and experience Dubai whilst enjoying some winter sun.”

The city, popular for its hotels, incredible experiences, enviable skyline, and contrasting desert, is synonymous with winter sun and is the perfect place for a family vacation.

Brits can expect to see a few changes with social distancing measures front of mind to keep visitors safe from the moment they step off their flight, but will still encounter warm hospitality, unique experiences, and plenty of sunshine.

Travelling to Dubai:
Ahead of travel to Dubai, Brits must present a negative COVID-19 PCR test which can either be done within 96 hours before departure or alternatively on arrival at DXB airport.
