In September, Abu Dhabi removed the requirement to quarantine on arrival for vaccinated travellers from all international destinations. Travellers who have received a full dose of a Covid-19 vaccine do not need to quarantine when flying into the UAE. Unvaccinated travellers flying to Abu Dhabi only need to quarantine if they’re coming from countries not currently on the green list.

Unvaccinated visitors arriving from non-green list countries must take a PCR test on arrival, quarantine for 10 days and take additional PCR tests on day six and nine.
