Abu Dhabi authorities implemented quick laser testing for COVID-19 to facilitate the procedures.

According to the latest update, all those who wish to visit Abu Dhabi amid the ongoing lockdown can undergo a rapid COVID-19 laser screening upon arrival. To pass a laser test, you will have to book an appointment via a dedicated website. The test costs AED 50.

A special rapid-testing facility for the coronavirus, which produces results within five minutes, has been opened up in Abu Dhabi to test people entering the emirate. The facility, which operates in a tent, is located near the last exit of the Sheikh Zayed Road (Dubai-Abu Dhabi road) before the Ghantoot border checkpoint.

“The laser-based DPI technique can detect virus-caused inflammation in blood samples within seconds”. People with a negative test result will be permitted to enter Abu Dhabi. Individuals who test positive must undergo further testing through a PCR nose swab test to confirm the source of the inflammation and are required to self-isolate until receiving results.

At the moment, a COVID-negative result is mandatory for entry Abu Dhabi. Negative test results must be shown to authorities at the border via the AlHosn app or as a text message from any hospital or certified screening center. Also, officials announced plans to set up a second instant screening center on the Abu Dhabi-Dubai border.
