Violating these procedures will result in penalties and fines as outlined by the Attorney General.

The Abu Dhabi Emergency Crisis and Disasters Committee for Covid-19 Pandemic has issued precautionary and preventive measures to protect the health and safety of the community to curb the spread of the coronavirus.

Firstly, everyone wishing to enter Abu Dhabi, must undergo a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test for Covid-19 98 hours before arriving in the emirate.

Individuals are required to wait at the entry point until the test result is received.

Upon arrival in Abu Dhabi, you must take a DPI laser test.

Travellers must also sign an undertaking to adhere to precautionary measures and disclose a contact number and full address of accommodation in any of the other emirates.

The Abu Dhabi Emergency Crisis and Disasters Committee for Covid-19 Pandemic has also issued quarantine guidelines for international travellers to Abu Dhabi.

If you’re a passenger arriving through any UAE port/entry points directly into Abu Dhabi, you must conduct a PCR test, and then register under the quarantine system. You will then receive an electronic wristband at Abu Dhabi’s border or entry point.

The electronic wristband must be worn for 14 days in self-quarantine and then the person affected must conduct a PCR test on day 12.

Once a Covid-19 result is achieved, the person affected can remove the wristband on day 14.

If you have been in Abu Dhabi for less than 14 days, you must conduct a PCR test.

You must then register under the quarantine system and you will then receive an electronic wristband at Abu Dhabi’s border or entry point.

You can deduct the days spent in other emirates from the self-quarantine period. For example, two days spent in another emirate means 12 days of quarantine.

You then must conduct a PCR test on day 12. Once a negative result is received, you can remove the wristband on day 14.

If you’ve spent more than 14 days in Abu Dhabi, there’s no need to quarantine.

You may enter Abu Dhabi via the approved border procedure and after undergoing required tests.

Health authorities will evaluate the most appropriate location for quarantine. This may be at home, in a hotel, or in accommodation provided by the authorities.

Violating these procedures will result in penalties and fines as outlined by the Attorney General.
