PCR test for travellers to Ajman

Ajman is reachable through two airports, Sharjah International Airport and Dubai International Airport. However, two of the airports have different requirements for the PCR testing. Below are the details:

Arrival via Dubai International Airport

For travellers arriving to Dubai, they must subject to these requirements below upon their arrival to Dubai:

  1. Present a valid vaccination certificate(s) reflecting that the passenger is fully vaccinated with a vaccine approved by the WHO or the United Arab Emirates (UAE), and includes a QR code
  2. Present a valid negative COVID‑19 PCR test certificate issued within 48 hours from the time of sample collection to the time of boarding and the certificate must be issued by an approved health service provider with a QR code
  3. Present a valid medical certificate issued by the relevant authorities that the passenger has recovered from COVID‑19 within 1 month from the date of recovery to the date of arrival

Arrival via Sharjah International Airport

For flight arrival, travellers are no longer obliged to present a negative result of a PCR test that they had taken before they arrive at Sharjah International Airport. However, unvaccinated travellers will have to undergo another PCR test within 48 hours upon their arrival or present a recovery certificate (containing a QR code) from COVID-19 issued within 30 days before departure, if they were infected with the virus.

If the result is positive, the unvaccinated traveller will be sent home or undergo quarantine for up to a period stipulated by the UAE Ministry of Health and Community Protection.

PCR test for Hajj pilgrims returning to Ajman

The National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority (NCEMA) has revised the testing procedures for Hajj pilgrims returning to the country from Saudi Arabia in response to a surge in COVID-19 cases in the UAE.

All Hajj pilgrims who return to the UAE are recommended to take a COVID-19 test upon arrival, a COVID-19 test that is required on day 4 following arrival and to remain in home quarantine for 7 days.
