DHA and SEHA will spare no effort to combat Covid-19 imposing discounts for PCR tests.

Abu Dhabi Health Services Co (SEHA) announced that the price of PCR tests will be discounted to AED 250. In its turn, the Dubai Health Authority (DHA) has confirmed reducing the cost for Covid-19 Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) tests to AED 250.

Covid-19 PCR tests across the country are now available at cheaper prices to ensure more people get tested especially if they are showing symptoms or have come into close contact with a confirmed case (a person who has tested positive).

For undergoing the test, you need to have:
– proof of residency,
– passport copy,
– valid Emirates ID.

The incubation period of one to 14 days for Covid-19, therefore, UAE authorities advised residents and citizens who were in close contact with a confirmed case to self-quarantine at home, regardless of whether you get a negative test result initially. It was suggested to undergo a test again after 14 days to ensure a negative result for Covid-19.

Provided close contact with a confirmed case, or having symptoms, the DHA website says to: “put on a mask, inform your supervisor who should coordinate with the company’s single point of contact (SPOC) to notify the Dubai Health Authority’s hotline 800342, start isolating yourself and most importantly do not panic.”

Every resident or citizen can undergo a discounted PCR test in Abu Dhabi and Dubai at SEHA drive-through testing centers, hospitals, and clinics. Besides the list, the Shabab Al Ahli and Al Nasr Club test centers will also provide AED 250 test.
