Abu Dhabi has revised the rules regarding mandatory Covid-19 testing and home quarantine requirements for vaccinated arrivals who are either UAE citizens or residents of the emirate.

Effective Monday, May 3, vaccinated travellers arriving from ‘green list’ countries must take a PCR test on arrival and on day six, without the need to quarantine.

Vaccinated residents and citizens arriving from countries which are not on the green list must take a PCR test on arrival and quarantine for five days. They must take another PCR test on day four of their arrival to the UAE.

The new travel update applies to vaccinated UAE citizens and residents of Abu Dhabi who have received their second vaccine dose at least 28 days earlier, and with their vaccine report documented on the Alhosn app.
