Abu Dhabi has updated its travel procedures for citizens and residents returning from abroad, effective from Monday, July 5.
The emirate’s Emergency, Crisis and Disasters Committee said vaccinated travellers arriving from green list destinations must take a PCR test on arrival without the need to quarantine, and take a PCR test on day 6.
Travellers arriving from destinations not on the green list must take a PCR test on arrival, quarantine for seven days and take a PCR test on day 6.
The rule applies to vaccinated UAE citizens and residents who received their second dose at least 28 days earlier, documented on Al Hosn app.
Unvaccinated citizens and residents arriving in Abu Dhabi from green list destinations must take a PCR test on arrival without the need to quarantine, and take a PCR test on days 6 and 12.
When arriving from other destinations, they must take a PCR test on arrival, quarantine for 12 days and take another PCR test on day 11.
At present, passengers arriving from countries not on Abu Dhabi’s green list are required to quarantine, and must wear an approved wristband for the duration.
If you have arrived from a country that the UAE authorities deem to be high risk, then you will be required to quarantine at a government facility.
