We are also helping Pakistanis, based in the UAE, to return to their jobs and their families. Emirates will continue to work closely with the Government of Pakistan to facilitate repatriation flights. Above all, the safety and the wellbeing of our customers and crew remain Emirates’ top priorities.”

Customers travelling to Dubai are advised to arrive at check-in early; bring the approval letter from the UAE’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs allowing them to return to the UAE, their own face mask and hand gloves; and abide by social distancing rules.

Stringent entry restrictions remain in place upon arrival in Dubai which includes: a mandatory DHA test on arrival; a mandatory 14-day quarantine; and a follow-up test before release. All Emirates aircraft go through enhanced cleaning and disinfection processes in Dubai, after each journey.
