This Solo Traveler Spent 2 Weeks in Dubai for NYE 2020!

I have been getting serious travel envy from some of Passport Poppin’s travel friends on Instagram. Luckily, through my Travel Tea Tuesday IG Live events, I can vicariously live through some of their travel experiences during what was probably the craziest year of my life. Kim, @kimwrldtour, was a special guest on a Travel Tea Tuesday live and thankfully she agreed to an interview to give you all the {written} travel tea in case you want to safely plan a trip to Dubai during these crazy times. Keep reading for all the good Dubai travel tea!

Where are you from??

My name is Kimberlee Holness and I was born in Jamaica, but raised in Germany. I am currently living in Philadelphia, Pa.

What made you travel to Dubai during Quarantine?

Deciding to travel to Dubai was very last minute and one of those spontaneous trips you decided to do with your friends after having too many drinks. I was in Punta Cana the first week of December and one night my friends told me they were planning on going to Dubai in a few weeks and I should come. When I got home three days later, I booked my flight with no hesitation to catch a flight to Dubai two weeks after I got back from Punta Cana.

What are the requirements for traveling to Dubai?

In order to get on the plane to go to Dubai, I had to present a negative PCR test that was taken within 96 hours of my flight. Once I got to Dubai, I had to take another CVOID-19 test at the airport which they did for free. They put a barcode on the back of your passport for you to scan and check the result of your test.
