Abu Dhabi drops quarantine for vaccinated
Before traveling to the capital city, all travelers (vaccinated and unvaccinated) will need to present a negative PCR test result from within 48 hours of departure, Abu Dhabi Media Office reported on Sunday.
Vaccinated travelers coming from “Green List” countries will need to take a PCR test on arrival but will not be required to quarantine. They will also have to take another PCR test on their sixth day in the emirate.
Vaccinated travelers arriving from other countries (not included in the “Green List”) will have to take a PCR test on arrival as well without the need to quarantine. However, they will be required to take another PCR test on their fourth and eighth days in Abu Dhabi.
Those exempt from vaccination as well as unvaccinated residents, citizens and visitors coming from “Green List” countries will need to take a PCR test on arrival too, without the need to quarantine, and another two PCR tests on their sixth and ninth day in the emirate.
Unvaccinated people arriving from other destinations (not on the “Green List”), will need to quarantine for 10 days and take PCR tests on arrival and on day nine.
