Dubai and Mumbai are two of the leading business as well as tourist hubs across the globe, with hundreds of Emiratis and Indians flying between the two cities frequently. Although the coronavirus pandemic had disturbed the airlines’ schedules for the past couple of years, flights have now returned back to normalcy.

Here are the latest flight schedules, airfares and entry requirements you should be aware of if you’re looking to travel from Dubai to Mumbai. 

Can I travel from Dubai to Mumbai?

Yes, you can. India is now fully open to international tourism.

Travellers from Dubai, irrespective of their vaccination status, can now fly to Mumbai without having to quarantine. However, in light of a sudden rise in the COVID-19 trajectory in the country, India has now implemented some travel restrictions for international arrivals.

According to the guidelines for international arrivals, the government has scrapped the requirement of Air Suvidha for arriving international passengers and presenting a negative PCR test report is no longer a requirement.


Mumbai entry requirements

The entry requirements of the city of Mumbai are regulated by the country’s central government. India’s COVID-19 entry requirements have been recently updated to follow a risk-based approach.

Pre-departure testing

As of now, the UAE is not on the list of high-risk countries. Therefore, travellers coming to India directly from the Dubai do not need to undergo a pre-departure COVID-19 test.

However, if any Dubai resident is travelling to India from China, Singapore, Hong Kong, Republic of Korea, Thailand or Japan, or has transited through any of these countries, they will be required to self-declare and submit a negative RT-PCR test report on Air Suvidha.

Post-arrival testing

According to the latest guidelines, 2% of arrivals in every flight are being tested on a random basis. If chosen, Dubai passengers will have to take a COVID-19 test at the airport, and if found symptomatic or tested positive, they will have to follow the standard protocol.

Quarantine requirements

India has done away with quarantine requirements for all arriving passengers, regardless of the destination of departure. Dubai residents, therefore, do not have to quarantine upon arrival in Mumbai (unless they test positive in the randomized testing).

Visa requirement

Dubai citizens intending to visit Mumbai for pleasure may apply for an e-visa online. The e-visa must be obtained prior to landing in the country.
