With the Covid-19 cases ebbing globally, the travel industry is looking forward to a significant rebound in international travel trends. As governments across the world have relaxed most restrictions, the need for taking a Covid-19 PCR test to travel to Abu Dhabi has also been done away with.
Here are the latest guidelines for PCR test entry requirements in Abu Dhabi.
PCR testing requirements in Abu Dhabi
As of 7 November 2022, almost all Covid-19 restrictions in Abu Dhabi have been lifted, and hence, travellers are no longer required to undergo PCR testing requirements for entry into Abu Dhabi. Moreover, the green status on the Al Hosn app and negative PCR tests are no longer required to enter Abu Dhabi attractions.
What about testing at the airport?
It is now no longer mandatory to take a PCR test upon arrival at Abu Dhabi International Airport. However, the testing facility remains at the airport for any visitors that wish to pay and take a PCR test. The cost of this PCR test is AED 40.
Testing in quarantine
Passengers arriving in Abu Dhabi do not need to undergo quarantine on arrival, and COVID-19 testing is optional.
However, if a traveller contracts Covid-19 while in Abu Dhabi, they must isolate themselves in their accommodation for five days. A positive PCR test result will change the patient’s Al Hosn app status to red, which will return to green after five days, indicating that they are free from isolation.
