Abu Dhabi to ease quarantine rules for travellers

The new regulations will come into effect on 1 July

The UAE capital currently requires 10 days of quarantine unless arriving from one of 22 countries on its green list. As of 1 July, Abu Dhabi will lift quarantine requirements for travellers.

The new system will be similar to the system currently in place in Dubai and the PCR protocol will differ from high-risk to low-risk destinations. Those coming from countries with higher infection rates would have to undergo two tests – one before they travel and another upon their arrival in Abu Dhabi.

Abu Dhabi currently requires individuals to quarantine for 10 days upon arrival unless they arrive from a country on the green list. The list, which comprises 22 countries, will expand to include more destinations in the lead up to 1 July.
