Entry requirements (COVID19)

Entry requirements (COVID19)
  • Travel health insurance incl. Corona protection. For more information about the insurance see below. You can also order this with the visa through us.
  • At entry you must present a recent corona test (PCR test) with negative result (and readable in English), which must not be older than 72 hours (3 days). On arrival at the airport a test is made again. Until the test result is available, you have to go into quarantine. In case of a positive corona test result, you will have to be in quarantine in the UAE for 14 days and pay for the costs yourself.
  • On entry it will be checked if you have a return flight booking and leave the country after 30 days at the latest!
  • Upon entry, you will be required to complete and sign a Quarantine & Health Form.
  • Everyone wishing to enter the UAE must download the COVID19 - DXB Smart App to their smartphone upon arrival in Dubai at the latest, either from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store. Free WiFi is available at Dubai Airport.
  • Please note when booking a flight which airline you are booking and from which country the customer is flying to the UAE. Certain countries of origin are currently excluded (subject to change at any time). It is best to book direct flights from Germany, Austria or Switzerland.
  • The above mentioned requirements also apply to all travelers who do not need a visa for the UAE because of their nationality
  • Please note that the granting of a visa is solely a decision of the UAE authorities! You only pay the Visa fee for processing, so there is no refund in the event of a refusal. Also, neither AVS nor its partner agency in Dubai can be held responsible for any cancellation fees of hotel and/or flight.

Details of the above mentioned travel health insurance incl. CORONA cover

  • Applies to stays of max. 30 days in the UAE from the booked date of entry

  • cover up to AED 150.000,- (approx. 34.000,- Euro) for medical costs incurred during the trip, including quarantine

  • cover up to 7.500,- AED (approx. 1700,- Euro) for return transport of patients

  • cover up to 10.000,- AED (approx. 2300,- Euro) for return transport of deceased

  • Only valid for the stay in the United Arab Emirates

  • Applies only to persons aged 70 years or younger

  • All costs beyond this are to be paid by the traveler himself. AVS (or the local partner agency in the UAE) cannot take responsibility for any additional costs!

  • There is no refund for the insurance fee, e.g. in case of cancellation

  • ATTENTION: The insurance does not pay if the stay authorized by the visa is exceeded by a maximum of 30 days! Therefore, no stays of more than 14 days should be booked, so that together with a possible quarantine of 14 days no visa overruns can occur!

  • Please note that the dates of arrival in the UAE and the return journey, as well as the exact details of the airline and flight number, must be correct when applying for a visa, as the insurance policy is only issued in connection with these dates and is only valid with them!
