Dubai-based carrier has resumed flights to 65 destinations and has seen a huge surge in interest in Dubai.

Bookings have also increased with travellers coming from more than 30 countries, including France, Germany, Malaysia, the UK and US.

Adel Al Redha, Emirates’ COO, said: “Dubai remains a highly attractive destination to international visitors.”

Visitors to the emirate can apply for visas in advance, or get their visa stamped on arrival if they hold a passport from one of 70 countries and territories, as per the entry and immigration regulations that were in place pre-pandemic.

From 1 August, Covid-19 PCR tests will be required for all travellers arriving to Dubai or transiting Dubai. Travellers heading to the UK and Europe will also be required to hold a negative PCR test certificate.

Al Redha added: “We know people want to travel, and Emirates is expanding its network to provide more choice to its customers. We have also implemented various measures to assure our customers of a smooth and safe travel experience.”
