After a travel corridor was established between the UAE and the UK two months ago, the UAE has now been dropped from the UK’s no-quarantine list.

As of today, anyone travelling to the UK from the UAE must undergo a mandatory quarantine period of 10 days due to the spike in COVID-19 cases.

While yesterday Scotland added Dubai to its quarantine list, this new rule now applies to all nations across the UK and to the whole of the UAE, as confirmed by Britain’s Department for Transport.

COVID-19 testing requirements

Just a few days ago, it was announced by the UK government that all incoming travellers from any country – whether they be visitors or British citizens – must ensure they have a negative COVID-19 PCR test which has been done within 72 hours.

These changes have come following an increasing number of cases in the UK due to a new reported strain of the virus which can spread more quickly.

For those travelling, if you are found without a negative COVID-19 test result will be given an immediate £500 fine.
