Emirates to resume flights between Dubai and Uganda

Passengers travelling to Dubai and transiting in Uganda will also be allowed to travel

Emirates has announced that it will resume passenger services to and from Uganda with effect from January 8.

Passengers travelling to Dubai and transiting in Uganda will also be allowed to travel, the airline said on its website.

However, customers travelling to or transiting through Dubai will need to meet the following Covid protocols:

– They will have to provide a valid negative Covid‑19 PCR test certificate with a QR code for a test conducted at an approved facility within 48 hours of departure. Validity must be calculated from the time the sample was collected.

– They also need to provide a valid negative Covid‑19 rapid or real‑time PCR test certificate with a QR code for a test conducted at the departure airport within six hours of departure.

– They will also need to undergo a Covid-19 PCR test on arrival in Dubai and must remain in self‑quarantine until they receive the test result.

UAE nationals and children under the age of 12 are exempt.

In addition, any customer who has been in Uganda within 14 days prior to their entry into Dubai is now permitted to travel with immediate effect.

Meanwhile, in an update on its website on January 5, the airlines announced complete suspension of flights to and from Dubai to six African destinations, and one-way suspension of services from seven other countries.
