PCR test for travellers to Sharjah

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.
