Entry to Abu Dhabi Available with Negative COVID-19 Test - Coming Soon in UAE
1 July 2020

The new regulations require to receive negative COVID-19 result before entry to Abu Dhabi.

Abu Dhabi officials announced that movement restrictions into Abu Dhabi will be changed. Now, to enter the emirate, there will be needed to show a negative COVID-19 test within 48 hours of attempted entry. Those who need to enter Abu Dhabi can provide results through the AlHOSN app or a text message from any hospital/screening center certified.

Last week, there was ease in restrictions, and residents were allowed to move between the Abu Dhabi, Al in, and Al Dhafrah regions freely.  Abu Dhabi residents and citizens are permitted to move within and between regions of Abu Dhabi 24 hours a day. Also, they can leave the emirates of Abu Dhabi, without having to apply for a permit.

However, it is forbidden for everybody to enter the emirate without given permits, which are checked on the special access points of the emirate. The key exemptions groups include frontline workers; people suffering from chronic diseases who need to apply for healthcare centres outside the emirate; and those transporting goods between regions.

These regulations are part of the National Screening Programme, aimed at preventing the spread of COVID-19. It was noted that the most effective way to curb the massive contagion is to limit the movement of the population along with expansive testing. The movement restrictions will be reviewed again on July 6, 2020.
