Before you fly

Emirates reminds all potential passengers that travel restrictions are still in place in many countries. Before booking your ticket, check to make sure you meet the entry requirements of your final destination.

For UAE residents stranded outside the country, you’ll need IAC approval before you can return. Find out how to register for IAC approval here.

Staying safe while travelling

Emirates Airline and Dubai Airport have introduced a range of measures to ensure your safety. All crew members and travellers, including those transiting through the airport, will have their temperature scanned on arrival.

You’ll be given a free hygiene kit at check-in, which includes a face mask, gloves, antibacterial wipes and hand sanitiser. Gloves and face masks must be worn while inside the terminal, and masks have to be worn during the flight.

Online check-in is currently closed, and you’ll have to check in all cabin baggage, except for a laptop, handbag, briefcase or baby items. Expect to see some changes to the in-flight service as well, including modified meals and extra sanitation.
