PCR tests are considered valid for 96 hours before departure from the origin airport to DXB, as reported by Gulf News.
DXB also requires that a PCR test to be repeated for tourists who had tested negative before departing to Dubai yet show COVID-19 symptoms, according to the procedures taken by the crisis and disaster management committee.
