Travelling to Dubai:
Safety of Dubai
With all measures in place, it's a great time to discover Dubai with its beautiful deserts, beaches and seas.
Spending the winter in 30 degrees? With year-round high temperatures and offering the ideal mix of beaches, city life and luxury, it's no surprise that Dubai is one of the top destinations in Britain.
And good news: In November the British government announced that Dubai, just as all other United Arab countries, are added to the list of quarantine-free travel destinations. Which means currently these are the measures for UK travellers to Dubai:
Travellers must have a negative COVID‑19 PCR test taken 96 hours within departure
No need to quarantine on return
Filled health validation form
Valid health insurance
Time Out Market 2021
Early 2021 the Dubai Time Out Market launches, aiming to celebrate the soul of Dubai through food and culture. With award-winning chefs, art and casual dining, spread over 30,000 sq ft, this is a yearly event you won't want to miss.
Your safety comes first, all the way to your destination. Emirates keeps you safe and protected.
Emirates has your safety and hygiene as first priority, and took extra measures to keep you safe. Everyone needs to keep safe distance with boarding through spaced seats, and the cabin crew will be in full personal protective equipment throughout the flight. A face mask is mandatory at all times on airport, during boarding and on board.
The cabin air of Emirates stays clean and fresh throughout your flight. Because of the advanced HEPA filters you can sit and relax in your seat without worry, since it removes 99.97% of viruses, germs and allergens. New air comes through the ceiling and refreshes every 2-3 minutes, while the old air is released outside - we're not breathing fellow passenger's air.
Emirates provides you with a hygiene kit on board, containing a mask, gloves, hand sanitiser and antibacterial wipes. The lavatories will be disinfected regularly, and flights longer than 1 hour and 30 minutes will have an extra cabin crew member who will be cleaning the lavatories. Before every trip, the plane goes through an enhanced cleaning process.
With ticket flexibility and a multi-risk travel insurance, booking your flight never felt more secure.
Emirates is the world's first airline to provide a multi function travel insurance, including coverage for COVID-19. You get the global travel insurance for flights purchased on or after December 1st. The benefits of your cover includes up to 500.000 USD oversea medical expenses, up to 7.000 USD cancellation costs if caused by COVID-19, or up to 7.500 USD if you have to abandon your travels for failing a COVID-19 test or medical screening at the airport.
