The Abu Dhabi Crisis, Emergency and Disasters Committee issues updated rules for tourists coming to the capital.

Abu Dhabi issued a new travel guideline for international travelers to the Emirate amid the coronavirus pandemic. Now, international travelers have to disclose the date of entry into the country at designated checkpoints and to follow approved guidelines:

  • Travelers have to self-isolate for 14 days upon arrival and wear a quarantine wristband;
  • Those coming to Abu Dhabi through any UAE port or entry point must take a PCR test and register under a quarantine system to receive an electronic wristband;
  • On day 12 of the isolation period, the traveler has to undergo further PCR test. If a negative test is confirmed, the wristband can be removed on day 14;
  • Travelers spent less than 14 days in another emirate before coming to Abu Dhabi are also required to adhere to the regulation but the days spent outside the capital will be deducted from the total quarantine period.

Those travelers who live with others may be asked to quarantine in a hotel or accommodation provided by authorities for 14 days. Families traveling together may stay fo quarantine period together. All the strict measures are taken to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and failure to adhere to these regulations will result in penalties.
