A new virus called the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) has been identified as the cause of a disease outbreak that began in China in 2019. The disease is called coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).
The virus is a type of coronavirus — a family of viruses that can cause illnesses such as the common cold, severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS).
Cases of COVID-19 have been reported in a growing number of countries, including the U.S. WHO declared a global pandemic in March 2020. Public health groups, such as the World Health Organization (WHO) and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), are monitoring the situation and posting updates, treatment and prevention recommendations on their websites.

UAE Phone # Restriction
Travelers are required to use this app prior to landing in the UAE; however, US cell phone numbers are not accepted (only local UAE #s). A bit of an oversight, as tourists would most likely not have local numbers, hopefully gets updated before flights resume on July 7.
C19 DXB Smart
This is, hands down, the worst app I have had to use. It is supposedly used to record PCR testing at DXB airport, but I was unable to pre-fill the required information for my flight from Jakarta.
The test was eventually (42 hours later) able to link to my test (but results were not yet available) — only after I used my VPN to link back to Indonesia. I could not see any link from my hotel link within Dubai.
That being said, once I had the VPN linked to Indonesia, I tried to pre-fill for a fake trip with my same flight numbers, but one week later. It almost worked, until I got to the scan of my visa. Since I am a US citizen with US passport, I don’t need or have a visa.
Even though it accepted the scan of my passport, it still required me to manually enter all the data from the passport. Is this a test of honesty? Or typing competence?
I could not get further than the visa scan page, but I tried a scan of my Indonesian wife’s visa. The app shut down after I manually entered the visa info and hit “continue”.
I was never able to finish the form. I am just hoping I can get my wife’s and my PCR test results, as we have been in hotel quarantine for 44 hours with our two rambunctious boys (ages 2 and 4), and they are going crazy!!!
Yeah it was rather straightforward, and easy to use. I think it’s a good way of informing people as to what is taking place in the area someone is looking to travel in. After all not; knowing rules, laws, and the do’s and don’ts, has never been and will never be an excuse. This app makes it easy to know what’s happening around the world in the area of interest to someone looking for information in that area.
