Dhaka: Dubai-based Emirates Airline is going to operate limited inbound passenger flights into Dubai.

The airline has currently been running repatriation flights from Dubai to selected cities in Europe, Asia and America.

“Stringent entry restrictions remain in place upon arrival in Dubai which includes: a mandatory DHA test on arrival; a mandatory 14 day quarantine and a follow up test before release," said the airline in a statement.

“COVID-19 flight and travel restrictions remain in place across many countries around the world. We are closely monitoring the situation as it evolves, and we hope to resume services as soon as conditions allow. This includes receiving government approvals, the easing of travel restrictions, and commercial demand. We will announce any service resumption when we are in a position to do so,” the statement added.

Passengers must apply for Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship approval via the UAE Twajudi Resident service, available at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation website.
