Abu Dhabi adds 27 countries to its green list

All travellers arriving from green list destinations will be exempt from quarantine measures 

Abu Dhabi has added 27 countries to its green list of travel, as it eases Covid-19 restrictions.

Only Romania was removed from the list, announced by The Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi (DCT Abu Dhabi). The UK, US and Israel are now among the 82 destinations that make up the green list – a welcome change for travel sellers ahead of half-term breaks.

Those arriving in the UAE capital from green-list countries will be required to present a negative PCR Covid-19 test result, from a test taken a maximum of 48 hours before departure, and undergo a PCR test upon arrival at Abu Dhabi International Airport.

Vaccinated passengers from green-list countries will need to take another PCR test on day six, while those not vaccinated will need to take PCR tests on days six and nine.

Last month, the emirate scrapped the quarantine requirement for all vaccinated travellers arriving into Abu Dhabi from all international destinations.

Non-vaccinated travellers arriving from non-green list destinations will need be required to take a PCR test on arrival, quarantine for 10 days and undergo another PCR test on day nine.
