Covid-19 PCR Test Centres in UAE

What is PCR Test?

The PCR test, which is short for Polymerase Chain Reaction, is currently the only type of test approved by the local and international health authorities to confirm the diagnosis of Covid-19 infection. The test is conducted through a nasal swab.

When and where can I get tested?

Generally speaking, hospitals and other government healthcare installations throughout the country serve as testing facilities for Coronavirus. But in an effort to more comprehensively trace, identify and isolate new cases of infection, the UAE government has erected numerous screening centres to mass test the population.

How much would I need to pay for the test?

Individuals under the “most vulnerable” category will be tested for free. Individuals considered vulnerable are those who are above 65 years of age, those who are pregnant, or those with ongoing chronic diseases. If you are suspected to have contracted the virus after the pre-assessment screening, the test will be free for you too.

For everyone else, a test will cost AED 370. In Abu Dhabi, the price for RT-PCR has been slashed down to Dh 250. Lazer-based DPI tests, an alternative to RT-PCR tests, cost Dh50, and can give results within minutes. 

If you are opting for a PCR test for international travel, you can avail of special rates of Dh 150 with Emirates and Fly Dubai. Those flying out of Abu Dhabi with Etihad Airways from October 1 to December end needn’t pay separately as the ticket costs include the price of the test as well. You can get yourself tested at the collection outlets of Life Medical Diagnostic Center (Life Dx). Free home collection for business and first-class flyers. 

How long until I get my results?

Typically, the results will be available within two or three days.

If you are tested negative for the infection, a text message or a phone call will be made by the authorities.

However, if you are tested positive, you will be notified by the authorities and they will recommend a self-isolation at home or at designated facilities depending on the severity of your symptoms.
