As part of its enhanced entry rules announced on Wednesday, the organisers of Expo 2020 Dubai have said that visitors must present either proof of a Covid-19 vaccination or a negative PCR test result.

Visitors aged 18 and above must present proof of any vaccine recognised by their national government or a negative PCR test taken within the previous 72 hours.

Non-vaccinated ticket-holders who have not been tested within this period can test at the PCR testing facility adjacent to the Expo 2020 site.

A network of testing centres across the city can be found on the Expo 2020 website. On presentation of any valid Expo 2020 ticket, alongside an Expo 1-Day or Multi-Day Pass, the PCR test will be free of charge.

“By updating our vaccination and testing requirements, we are opening up a world of discovery and education for every visitor from every corner of the planet, enabling the world to experience Expo 2020’s incredible offering in a safe and secure manner,” said Reem Al Hashimy, UAE Minister of State for International Cooperation and Director General, Expo 2020 Dubai.

“As we prepare to welcome tourists to the UAE and visitors to Expo 2020, we need to build on our successes in combating COVID 19, where we have seen a decline of nearly 84 per cent in cases in the past eight months. Our commitment to the health and safety of all visitors, participants and staff will remain our number one priority. We will continue to follow the guidance of the leading science and medical experts, adjusting our measures as appropriate in our commitment to hosting an exceptional experience that all the world can enjoy,” added Al Hashimy.

The country’s Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHAP) said on Wednesday that total number of Covid-19 jabs provided until today stands at 19,163,754 with a vaccine distribution rate of 193.76 doses per 100 people. The country has fully immunised 80 per cent of its population.

Dubai welcomed 2.85 million visitors in the first half of 2021, with numbers predicted to accelerate in the fourth quarter, boosted by Expo 2020 Dubai and the UAE’s Golden Jubilee celebrations.
