UAE government has launched a new initiative of COVID drive through tests across the Emirates to make sure anyone can get tested.
The facilities are spread across Dubai, Adu Dhabi and other Emirates.
Tests can be done without doctor's prescription.
The drive through facilities are so popular that bookings quickly become unavailable. Some residents get available booking slots only after 2-3 weeks from the day they make an appointment.
There are 9 centers available in Dubai, 7 in Abu Dhabi and 1 center in every other Emirate: Sharjah, Ajman, Umm Al Quwain, Ras Al Khaimah, Fujairah.
You can book your drive through test by calling Seha authority 800-1717 and checking where the nearest slots are available. Alternatively call 042608777 and get tested in the centers run by Al Futtaim Health Hub.
For people showing coronavirus symptoms the cost of the test is 370 AED. At Futtaim Health Hub can also test those who are not showing any symptoms but still eager to get tested, however the cost is 425 AED.
Make sure to take Emirates ID when you go for the testing.
It normally takes 2-3 days to get your test result, but might take longer due to very high demand.
