Abu Dhabi updates rules for entering emirate and testing requirements
Safety measures have been updated with the aim of ‘enhancing precautionary measures to curb the spread of COVID-19’.
Effective from August 27, those entering Abu Dhabi will be only granted permission if they meet one of two criteria.
The first scenario requires those visiting to present a negative PCR swab test that’s been taken in the last 48 hours.
Residents can also enter Abu Dhabi if they have a negative DPI laser test result and have a negative PCR swab test from the past six days.
The change means that those previously entering Abu Dhabi showing a negative DPI laser test now also must also have had a PCR swab test within the past six days to be granted entry.
Those participating in the COVID-19 vaccine trial are exempt from the new regulations.
Abu Dhabi has had entry restrictions at the border in place since June 2.
