Emirates Skywards: Membership Benefits

When do I get e-gate access benefits?

Emirates Skywards members can use Dubai Immigration’s e-gate technology at Dubai International Airport and also at Abu Dhabi International Airport. Once your card is activated, you will be able to exit and enter these airports in as little as five seconds. Please note that Emirates Skywards Blue members will receive their membership cards once they complete their qualifying flights.

If you are eligible for e-gate benefits you will need to activate your card prior to travelling, which can be done at various locations in Dubai or at Dubai or Abu Dhabi International Airports. Your e-gate privileges will remain valid as long as you are an active Emirates Skywards member.
