PCR Test In Dubai 2022: Location, Timing, Availability and Cost

If you are a resident of Dubai and planning to visit Expo and travel to another country, you need to get a PCR test urgently.

Firstly, it is important to explore the laboratories, clinics, and hospitals that offer this service, its rate, and result timing. Then you can choose the most suitable place to visit to get a Covid-19 PCR test.

What is a PCR Test?

PCR stands for a polymerase chain reaction. This test takes a sample from your body to check the presence of any virus.

With a PCR test, you can detect the remains of the virus even after the recovery from any viral infection.

Therefore, after recovery, you will get a positive result when you get this test done.

What is the Covid-19 PCR Test?

For tests, doctors take samples of the respiratory system, i.e., from the nasal cavity and the back of your mouth, to check the presence of any virus RNA.

They use a flexible plastic stick with cotton to take samples and swab them on the nasal cavity. It is the most precise and reliable test for diagnosing the Covid 19 virus SARS-CoV-2.Covid 19 PCR Test

Requirements

Traveling to Dubai

If you are traveling to Dubai, you must carry a negative Covid 19 test result. The validity time for this test varies depending on the country you are coming from.

From Restricted Country – less than 48 hours

From Un-Restricted Country – less than 72 hours

Moreover, you also need a hard copy of the test result and vaccination certificate because any soft copy of these documents is not acceptable.

Traveling from Dubai

The test requirements vary based on the country you are traveling to.  The condition of each country varies very quickly because of an uncertain situation.

Therefore, an immediate negative Covid 19 test result and related documents are essential to visit any place in the world.

Visit Dubai Expo

A negative Covid 19 test result that is not more than 72 hours old is important to keep with you if you want to visit Expo in Dubai.

Moreover, you can enjoy a free PCR test facility if you buy a single-day or multiple-day ticket.

Also, here you have to show these documents in paper form.

Places to Visit for Test

To pick the best PCR test place for you, firstly, you have to collect the information precisely.  For example, the location, available timing, appointment procedure, and the result timing of clinics and hospitals.
