Dubai: People planning to visit Dubai Police’s headquarter, police stations and customer service centres must now present a negative PCR test report before entry.

This new measure was announced by Dubai Police, with effect from Saturday, February 13. The move is in line with the precautionary measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

The Crisis and Disasters Management team in Dubai Police approved mandatory PCR test for all customers who wish to enter the main building of Dubai Police or its buildings in other parts of the emirate, including all the customer happiness centres.

Only those customers who have a negative PCR test report, with a validity not exceeding 48 hours after receiving the result, will be permitted to enter these buildings. Those who have been vaccinated [with two doses of vaccine] will be permitted to enter without a PCR test report.
