COVID test in the UAE

Generally speaking, hospitals and other government healthcare installations throughout the country serve as testing facilities for Coronavirus. But in an effort to more comprehensively trace, identify and isolate new cases of infection, the UAE government has erected numerous screening centers to mass test the population.

How do I know if I should take the test?

According to the Dubai Health Authority (DHA), symptoms of the infection are as follows:

– Fever
– Shortness of breath
– Cough
– Headache
– Sore throat

Those who exhibit the above symptoms are considered a priority by the authorities in terms of taking the Coronavirus test.

A test may also be warranted if you’ve been in contact with a confirmed or suspected COVID-19 case, or have a travel history within the last 14 days.

Additionally, you’re classified as vulnerable should you are over 65 years of age, pregnant, or have other illnesses such as diabetes, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, and other medical conditions.

If you are traveling out of the Emirates, you can also get yourself tested, thanks to the affordable and accessible pre-travel Covid-19 testing in UAE offered by major airlines and healthcare facilities.

COVID test also mandatory for visitors from a select group of countries on arrival in Dubai, even if you do not exhibit symptoms and you are carrying a negative PCR certificate. Abu Dhabi recently reviewed its entry guidelines and you’d now need to get a COVID test done on the 6th and 12th day after your arrival in the emirate. 

How to book or make an appointment for the test?

Bookings for a test appointment at any drive-thru facility in the UAE can be made from the SEHA app or by calling the Estijaba helpline at 8001717. In Dubai, you may also call the Dubai Health Authority hotline at 800342.

In addition to the drive-thru testing facilities, the UAE also has a home testing service known as the National Home Testing Programme for People of Determination who are unable to reach the testing centres. For booking appointments for the same, you may call 8001717.

How much would I need to pay for the test?

Individuals under the “most vulnerable” category will be tested for free. Individuals considered vulnerable are those who are above 65 years of age, those who are pregnant, or those with ongoing chronic diseases. If you are suspected to have contracted the virus after the pre-assessment screening, the test will be free for you too.

For everyone else, a test will cost AED 40. This will be the standard rate at all medical facilities in the country, according to the National Emergency Crisis and Disasters Management Authority (NCEMA). Results of these tests must be released within 24 hours.

Do I need to prepare anything for the test?

While document requirements may vary depending on where you live, the authorities would generally ask for one of the following:

– Passport copy
– Visa copy
– Original Emirates ID
– Tenancy contract/latest DEWA bill
– Recent passport photograph
– Medical insurance card
– Health Card/Family Card (for UAE Nationals)

What should I do once I’ve reached the test centre?

Once at the screening centre, make sure that you’re wearing your mask and gloves at all times, as per the UAE health protocols.

Once the test has been completed, please head home and remain there until your test results have been confirmed.

How long until I get my results?

Results of these tests will be released within 24 hours.

If you are tested negative for the infection, a text message or a phone call will be made by the authorities.

However, if you are tested positive, you will be notified by the authorities and they will recommend a self-isolation at home or at designated facilities depending on the severity of your symptoms.

What will happen if I test positive?

If your test is positive, please do not panic. The government will provide the required emergency services for you and your family. If you test positive you must visit the Ministry of Health and Prevention or other authorised health authorities to receive treatment,

The DHA will send healthcare personnel to your place of residence and they will bring your family members in for screening. If said family members do not show any symptoms of the infection, they will be allowed to return home but will be subjected to a 14-day quarantine.

Covid patients who have successfully completed their isolation period will be issued an isolation clearance certificate.

Should your family members display symptoms, then they will be moved to a facility where they can be isolated and administered treatment until they are tested negative for Coronavirus.

The entirety of the process may take up to three weeks.

After testing positive for COVID-19, the authorities will conduct contact tracing; meaning contacting and screening all the people who may have been in close contact with you prior to your COVID-19 test. This is to ensure that the outbreak is properly dealt with and contained.
