Not sure if this is the correct sub-forum, happy to be corrected. But has anyone flown with Emirates with the new COVID test requirements?

It is so confusing, most COVID test centres in Australia need a referral and they just send you a text - whereas you need a certificate to show at check in. Was hoping someone could shine some light on the process.

I work for Flight Centre, but I'm not an agent, andI may be wrong so take this with a grain of salt.

The information I've seen is that you need written (not text) confirmation in a format that is acceptable to the UAE government, but it's not clear what that is. It also needs to be recent, I think less than 96 hours prior to departure for Emirates and less than 96 hours prior to arrival in UAE for Etihad.

I've seen Pure Health mentioned since they have a SLA of 72 hours, but the are expensive ($135 I think).
