The time limit for taking the rapid PCR test for stranded travelers from India, Pakistan, and four other countries, has been brought from four hours before departure to six hours before departure, leaving more leeway for passengers to take the test. The Dubai Civil Aviation Authority informed travel agents about the change and termed it as extra flexibility for the airlines. However, the notification has specified that the test needs to be based on molecular diagnostic testing.
