Smart gates in Dubai Airport Terminal 3 have reopened to ease the travel procedures for passengers and staff.

Since international travel is getting back and lots of tourists coming to Dubai, it was decided that the smart gates at Dubai International Airport reopen for passengers departing Dubai via Terminal 3. There is the scanning of passengers’ passport only needed to depart, which is the safest way to travel, especially in the current situation.

At the moment, Dubai residents are not permitted to scan the Emirates ID. The smart gates make for a swift journey through the airport providing a quick and convenient way to get through travel procedures. After a gradual lift on travel restrictions, Dubai welcomed a great number of passengers with GDRFA ensuring the safety of all visitors.

The decision on restoring smart gates operation was announced on September 2 by the General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs in Dubai (GDRFA). It goes as part of UAE’s preventive measures against the spread of the COVID-19, to ensure the highest level of safety for both passengers and staff.

HE Major General Mohammed Al Marri, Director-General of the General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs in Dubai stated that “The restart of the smart gates helps to facilitate and simplifies the travel procedures, as the smart gates consider the safest way to travel in light of the current conditions that the world defeat against the COVID-19.”
