Wearing masks at all times in the airport is also mandatory.

Note: OTB(OK TO BOARD) is Required only for ECR passport Holders.

Dubai OK to Board explained

OK to Board(OTB) is a requirement of the Airline. It is a verification procedure undertaken by the airline to check the authenticity of your UAE visa. The airline checks your visa and passes a message in their reservation system stating that the applicant’s visa is valid and he/she is ok to board the flight. Whether an OTB is required or not will depend upon the airline in which you have booked your flights. The OTB should be processed at least 48 hours before your intended date of travel to Dubai.

Why is OTB required?

if an airline lets a passenger without a valid visa and OTB to board a flight, they will be fined by the authorities in UAE, and will also be made to bear the cost of repatriating the offender. To combat this, airline check-in staff ensures that the passenger has a valid passport and visa prior to issuing a boarding pass. This job becomes more challenging when passengers are travelling to a country where visas are either issued electronically or are paper based and not stamped on the passport. In such cases, passengers have a print-out of the visa, which could easily be faked.

Is Ok to Board mandatory?

Yes, the OTB is mandatory in some airlines. Till now all Indian passport holders visiting Dubai were supposed to update the OTB (Ok to Board) status before boarding the flight. However in a recent development, OTB for Dubai is not required now for Indians holding a ‘Non-ECR’ or ‘ECNR’ passport and intending to visit Dubai. However we recommend you check with our Visa Experts.

What to do once you land in Dubai ?

At, Dubai International Ariport You need to download DXB covid-19 app and register all your details besides you need to have a copy for COVID approved health insurance covering your entire duration of stay in Dubai. The airline can also refuse you entry if you display any COVID-related symptoms.

Thermal screenings are done on all visitors in the Dubai Airport and can be subject to retest if the authorities are not satisfied with you.
