*Important Information*


Passengers arriving in Dubai from the certain countries will be required to take another COVID‑19 PCR test on arrival at Dubai International airport. The list of these countries are updated regularly.  Requirements regarding onsite testing should be reviewed prior to travel to ensure adequate time (at least 48 hours) is given from arrival to allow for the return of any test results. 

Attendees requiring PCR testing upon arrival will be required to quarantine at their hotel while they wait for their test results. Should an attendee be scheduled to arrive prior to their hotel check-in time (standard check-in is typically between 1400-1600), it is recommended that the guestroom be booked starting from the previous night to ensure access to immediate check-in.

Please review the guidelines and lists regularly for updates.
