The world is dealing with a pandemic and traveling is more difficult. Yet, Dubai is open for business again! Yes, you need a Covid 19 test within 96 hours before you board your Emirates flight. But rest assured, it is possible and fairly easy to do!
The test involves a swab that is put up your nose and swirled around while a medical test person counts. It feels a bit like getting water up your nose. Your eyes may tear a bit, but that is the worst of it! One, two, three, until ten and you are done!
Los Angeles offers direct flights and rapid Covid testing. Make sure that it is a PCR test, as that is the only one accepted. Many places give you free tests and they are getting faster at obtaining results.
What happens once you test negative? Its then time to get travelers insurance, as some insurances will not cover Covid once you decide to travel. Dubai requires that you have it.
Get your negative test, your insurance, and come enjoy Dubai! Hotels and restaurants hard hit by the virus are open and ready for your business! It has never been a better time to travel if you want to avoid crowds! Just continue to be careful with social distancing and wash your hands. Like most places, masks are required in public.
