Abu Dhabi has updated its travel procedures for citizens and residents returning from abroad.

The changes will come into effect on Monday, July 5.

Vaccinated Travellers: 

Vaccinated travellers arriving from green list destinations must take a PCR test on arrival without the need to quarantine, and another test on day 6.

When arriving from other destinations, they must get tested on arrival, quarantine for seven days (instead of 5) and take another PCR test on day 6 (instead of day 4).

The protocol applies to vaccinated UAE citizens and residents who received their second dose at least 28 days earlier, documented in the vaccine report on Alhosn app.

Unvaccinated Travellers:

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 get tested again on days 6 and 12.

When arriving from other destinations, they must get tested on arrival, quarantine for 12 days (instead of 10) and take another PCR test on day 11 (instead of day 8).

Currently, Abu Dhabi's Green List has 31 countries and territories from where travellers can fly to the Emirate without the need to quarantine.
