Dubai airline Emirates has announced that its passengers can take a Covid-19 PCR test at a reduced rate of Dhs150 at certain hospitals in the emirate.

The offer is available at American Hospital in Dubai, American Hospital Dubai Media City Clinic, American Hospital Al Barsha Clinic and American Hospital Al Khawanij Clinic (opening end September).

Home or office testing within Dubai for a minimum of two passengers is also available at Dhs250, the airline confirmed on its website.

Passengers must present a valid ticket/boarding pass (departure within one month of test date) and ID to take the test.

Test results will be available within 48 hours.

“Passengers must take the test within the period required by their destination and Emirates will not be responsible if the test results are not released in time for travel,” the airline added.

Currently, passengers travelling from Dubai to certain destinations, such as the UK or Europe, are required to take a Covid-19 PCR test no more than 96 hours before departure and present the printed test result certificate at check-in. Children under the age of 12 and passengers who have a moderate or severe disability are exempt from the test.

On Sunday, the Dubai Health Authority (DHA) said it will lower the price of Covid-19 PCR tests from Dhs370 to Dhs250 within the emirate.

The DHA said that the decision was taken to make testing more accessible to the public and encourage proactive medical examinations.
