Emirates Airline passengers can now obtain a free PCR test on arrival at Dubai International Airport, allowing them to visit the Expo 2020 Dubai site.
On arrival, passengers simply have to show their Expo tickets — which they can get free with their airline tickets — to airline staff to avail of the free service.
The testing lounge is situated a short distance before the immigration hall and no booking is required prior to taking the test.
The service is aimed at passengers who are not vaccinated, or wish to get tested as a precaution. To enter Expo 2020, visitors must show either a Covid-19 vaccine certificate or a negative PCR test taken up to 72 hours earlier at the world's fair gates.
While there is a dedicated testing centre on site for visitors — with results usually returned within four hours — organisers have urged people to come to the event prepared.
When flying on an Emirates flight between October 1 and March, 31, 2022, each passenger can get a free day pass to the Expo 2020 site.
To claim your pass, just enter your details on the Emirates website under the Expo tab and the tickets will be mailed direct to the person who booked the flights.
Latest figures from Expo 2020 Dubai show the event has attracted nearly 1.5 million visits since opening day.
