Another holiday hotspot scraps Covid tests for Brit travellers

MORE countries are easing Covid restrictions for holidaymakers, in time for the summer season.

Dubai is the latest destination which no longer requires tests from vaccinated arrivals.

Since February 26, vaccinated Brits no longer need to have a negative PCR test to enter Dubai.

Unvaccinated arrivals still need a negative PCR test up to 48 hours of arrival.

Tourists may also still be tested on arrival, although kids under 12 are exempt from all testing rules.

Face mask rules have also changed in Dubai – they are now optionaloutdoors although are still mandatory at indoor public spaces.

The rules are different elsewhere in the UAE.

In Abu Dhabi, vaccinated tourists still need a PCR test 48 hours before arrival, as well as a second test on arrival, followed by tests on day four and day eight.

Covid restrictions are being lifted across many of the British holiday hotspots, with hopes of a holiday abroad similar to pre-pandemic.
