Emirates to resume flight services to African countries

After suspending flight services to African countries due ot Covid concerns, the Emirates has announced that it will resume passenger services to and from countries like Guinea, Ivory Coast, Ghana, Uganda and Angola as of Thursday.

The Dubai based airline had decided to suspend flights for these specific African nations on December 28. African nations were considered dangerous among all other regions because the Omicron variant was first detected in South Africa.

The only requirement right now is that the passengers who are traveling from Guinea, Uganda or Ghana with their final destination as Dubai will need a negative PCR test. The test should been taken within 48 hours and a rapid text before six-hours including PCR on arrival in the UAE.

Other than this, anyone who is coming from Angola or Ivory Coast to Dubai are required to carry a negative PCR result from a test taken within 72 hours. They will also be needed to take a PCR test on arrival.

The passengers who are willing to take flights connecting Guinea to Senegal via Emirates should be sticking to the rules that need to be followed by the destination country.

Travelers will now have to present a valid negative Covid-19 PCR test certificate from an approved facility. It should always have a QR code to check the authenticity and the validity should be dating back to the sample that was collected by the laboratories.
