Travelers do not need to register or fill in any forms ahead of their travel plans, according to the airline.
Tourists traveling to the UAE are required to show proof of insurance with COVID-19 coverage in order to be granted entry into the country. Alternatively, passengers may declare that they will bear the costs for treatment and isolation if necessary before travel.
