The passengers travelling from India to Dubai will no longer need to undergo a Covid RT-PCR test at the departure airports. Until recently, the passengers were supposed to take the test at the departure airports within six hours of the flight.

The new guidelines issued by the Dubai Airport has removed this requirement for travellers from four countries including India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. According to the circular, effective February 22, passengers from these nations need a negative result of a RT-PCR test taken within 48 hours of travel. They also need to undergo a PCR test on arrival in Dubai.

Passengers are required to self-quarantine till they get their results. However, the circular does not mention the RT-PCR test requirement.
