Please use this topic to discuss the Polaris Program and its series of private SpaceX missions. The program consists of up to three human spaceflight missions, culminating in the first flight of SpaceX's Starship with humans on board.

Does SpaceX have an airlock developed for Dragon or are they going to purge the cabin for EVA?

There is no airlock. The cabin will be depressurized, Gemini-style.

As of now, it is planned that only two crew members will venture outside Dragon, but all four astronauts will be wearing SpaceX's new (still in development) EVA spacesuits.
