Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates which currently requires travelers to quarantine for 10 days is now planning to end quarantine for all international arrivals starting from July 1.
“It will be similar to the Dubai system – the PCR protocol will be different from high-risk to low-risk destinations,” said Ali Al Shaiba, executive director of Tourism and Marketing, DCT Abu Dhabi.
“Quarantine will not be an option,” he further added.
Currently, all vaccinated travelers arriving from ‘Green List’ countries must take an RT-PCR test on arrival and day 6, without the need to quarantine.
Vaccinated travelers arriving from other countries which are not included in the ‘Green List’ must take an RT-PCR test on arrival, quarantine for five days, and take another PCR test on day four.
Al Shaiba also said, “We are also announcing an extended green list – this green list will cover a majority of the markets that we are tapping into.”
“Hopefully, by the first of July, everybody will be allowed to travel to Abu Dhabi”
At present total 24 countries are listed under the ‘Green List’ of Abu Dhabi
- Hong Kong (SAR)
- New Zealand
- Saudi Arabia
- South Korea
- Taiwan (ROC)
- United Kingdom
