Dubai reopens to tourism on July 7

The Gulf city state of Dubai will start welcoming tourists again from July 7.

It follows a closure of more than three months since the pandemic swept across the Gulf region and Europe.

The Supreme Committee of Crisis and Disaster Management has outlined 'new normal' protocols for a safe Covid-19 free reopening.

"Travellers must stringently comply with preventive measures and safety procedures put in place by Dubai and destination countries," it said in a report.

All foreign arrivals are required to show a recent Covid-19 negative certificate or undergo testing on arrival.

Temperature screening will also take place for all arrivals.

Any positive tests require a mandatory 14-day period of quarantine 'at an institutional facility provided by the government at their own expense.'

All arrivals must also have international travel insurance.

"Beach-goers are required to maintain a distance of two metres between one another, along with their sun beds, while there should be a gap of four metres between two groups of people and their sun-beds on the beach," the Dubai tourism department announced.
