Dubai Tourism reveals guidelines for new arrivals, including a 14-day quarantine

UAE residents returning to Dubai will be required to self-quarantine for 14 days, according to guidelines issued by Dubai Tourism. As well as a mandatory 14-day quarantine, residents returning home will also undergo a Covid-19 test on arrival, download the Covid-19 DXB app and sign an understanding that confirms they will comply with all regulations.

Initially the guidelines, which include a 14-day quarantine, also applied to tourists visiting Dubai, although Dubai Tourism confirmed to The National that it is still reviewing its protocols for visitors, with final procedures not yet determined.  

Those who are required to self-quarantine for 14 days will be able to do so in either a private home or a hotel. Arrivals that choose a private home, must be self-quarantining in residences that meet certain criteria, including access to a separate bathroom and being able to live separately from others in the same home. For those staying in hotels, meals will be provided three times per day, or can choose to order takeaways at heir own cost. Throughout the two weeks in hotel quarantine, guests are responsible for maintaining and cleaning their own room. 

Additionally according to Emirates official website, residents arriving are required to print out and fill in a health declaration form and quarantine declaration form to present upon arrival in Dubai.
