Abu Dhabi Bans Movement Outside the Emirate

Abu Dhabi Bans Movement Outside the Emirate - Coming Soon in UAE
1 June 2020

While there have been eased restrictions on public areas, Abu Dhabi implements a ban on movement in and out of the emirate.

Abu Dhabi announces a week-long ban on entry and exit from the emirate, as well as movement on its territory in order to prevent the outbreak of the COVID-19.

According to the authorities, movement within the administrative center of Abu Dhabi, the cities of Al Ain and Al Dafra will be allowed, but residents of UAE will not be able to travel between them. Along with this, trips from the capital to other emirates will be also banned.

The Abu Dhabi Crisis and Emergency Management Committee claims that the ban will enter into force on June 2, 2020. At the same time, the curfew regime in the emirate will remain in force from 10:00 PM to 06:00 AM, during the operation of the National Sterilization Program.

The ban applies to both residents and UAE citizens, with an exception for workers in vital sectors of the economy, people with chronic diseases when traveling to hospitals and for essential goods, for which a special permit will be issued.

Sheikh Abdulla said that ongoing restrictions were to “reduce contact and maintain the health and safety of all community members.” It is worth noting that the shopping centers, beaches at hotels, museums and restaurants can now receive up to 40% of visitors to the total capacity. City beaches remain closed.
