It is pertinent to mention here that since the city has reopened for foreign business and leisure tourists, consumers can stopover or fly to Dubai. COVID-19 PCR testing is mandatory for all inbound and transit passengers arriving in Dubai (and the UAE), including UAE citizens, residents, and tourists, regardless of the country from which they originate.
