All passengers traveling from Nigeria with Dubai as their final destination require a 48 hour PCR test.

Upon arrival in Dubai, passengers will undergo an additional Covid-19 PCR test and remain in self-quarantine until the results of the test are received.
Since it safely resumed tourism activity in July 2020, Dubai remains one of the world’s most popular holiday destinations, especially during the winter season. The city is open for international business and leisure visitors. It was one of the world’s first cities to obtain Safe Travels stamp from the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) – which endorses Dubai’s comprehensive and effective measures to ensure guest health and safety.

The airline has also recently introduced contactless technology and scaled up its digital verification capabilities to provide its customers even more opportunities to utilize the IATA Travel Pass, which can now be used across 50 airports served by Emirates.
