Abu Dhabi requires travelers to undergo COVID-19 PCR tests on the fourth and eighth day after entering the emirate.

Under new requirements,  UAE citizens and residents will have to provide negative 3 tests (PCR or DPI test) upon entering the capital. Abu Dhabi Crisis, Emergency and Disasters Committee implements new requirements “to enhance preventative measures for the early detection of COVID-19”.

It is stated that travelers staying for less than 4 days are required to provide only one test. But, if the traveler stays for a longer period, it is mandatory to undergo a PCR test on the 4th day (the day of entering is considered as day one). Also, travelers will be required to take a third and final PCR test on the 8th day.

These updated requirements apply to all UAE citizens and residents, including Abu Dhabi residents, with the exception of volunteers in the COVID-19 vaccine trials. The volunteers are given a permit to use the emergency vehicle lanes to enter the city.

Provided fail to undergo the PCR test on day four and day eight, a traveler will have to pay fines. At the moment, the rapid DPI test valid for entry on day one costs around AED 50. The PCR tests can cost upwards of AED 150.
