Omani nationals and students travelling to Australia and New Zealand must take the COVOD-19 tests before travelling, the Consulate General in Australia said.

In a statement, the consulate said, ‘all passengers traveling through one of UAE airlines, whether from or to one of the airports in UAE, must undergo the COVID-19 examination at the nearest health institution, and submit a medical report stating that the traveler is free of the virus.’

It said that the tests must be conducted 96 hours before travel. However, travellers with special needs and children under the age of 12 years are excluded from the procedure.
