COVID-19 Travel Guidelines

With ever-changing international travel advice, Covid-19 testing requirements can make planning a trip difficult. The Hope recommends, it’s really important to see the newest travel restrictions for your origin or destination country before you head to the airport, including eligibility for entry and Covid-19 testing rules. Failing to meet the requirements could result ineligibility to participate in the program and also onboarding your flight by the respective airline. 

 

COVID -19 Travel Insurance

As always, we recommend all our participants to buy travel insurance. All major airlines from the UAE have automatic travel coverage adjusted to cater to the pandemic, but we strongly suggest that all participants read through the fine print and eligibility on an individual level. 

 

PCR Test Requirements

Different destinations have specific travel requirements, therefore to avoid any complications, The Hope requires  all its participants to present a copy of a negative COVID-19 PCR test emailed to us prior to your departure from the UAE. 

Emaraties are exempted from PCR test prior to arriving to the UAE, but all other nationalities are required; visitors or residents. All logistics for conducting authorized PCR tests prior to your arrival to the UAE will be facilitated by The Hope.
