Covid testing in Zanzibar



Has anyone had to take a covid test in Zanzibar for an Emirates flight? Emirates has released its list of approved testing facilities, and oddly there aren’t any on the island. As I will be spending the final five days of my trip there before flying back to Dubai, I’m hoping that I can get the test in Stone Town rather than having to fly to Dar and back for the test.

I called their office in Zanzibar but the call didn’t go through! I’ve also emailed and haven’t heard back yet, so thought I’d ask here if anyone has gone through the process. I’ll also update this thread with what I hear back from Emirates, and what I end up doing.

Thanks everyone!
