Dubai residents and expatriates have an opportunity to test at new COVID-19 drive through centre. Two more to open in Al Khawaneej and Port Rashid.

Dubai Health Authority announced the opening of a new drive-through testing centre at Dubai’s Al Nasr Club. The testing centre will be open every day from 08:00 AM to 06:30 PM for the general public free of charge.

The capacity of a new drive-through test centre is up to 250 tests per day and it will accept in a first row senior citizens, pregnant women, people of determination, people with chronic diseases, and people with COVID-19 symptoms.

If you need to take a test, you should make an appointment in advance. To appoint, call DHA on 800DHA (800342) and after registration, you’ll receive a confirmation text message. You will be asked to present this text message and a valid Emirates ID at the drive-through centre.

The test will take five minutes, conducted by DHA medical personnel who will approach the vehicle and collect a nasal swab. Results can be obtained within 48 hours of the test-taking place through the DHA app, where you should choose ‘Lab Results’ followed by ‘Patient Services’.

According to the new regulations introduced by The Supreme Committee of Crisis and Disaster Management, you will need to obtain a permit to leave your home. You’ll also be required to wear a protective mask and gloves.

It was recommended by Dubai Health Authority to take no more than three people per vehicle for the test. They added that people should show the test confirmation text message if they are stopped by police for leaving the house.
