In an effort to tighten the control of the Coronavirus spread, the UAE government has erected numerous screening centres to mass test the population. Here are some places in Abu Dhabi you can go to get tested.

Free testing

The following priority categories are eligible for free testing. If you are one of the following categories, you can book by calling Estijabah on 8001717:

  • UAE nationals
  • Senior citizens above 50 years old
  • Residents above 50 years old
  • People suffering from chronic disease

Otherwise, free testing is available by booking an appointment through the SEHA App for the following categories:

  • UAE nationals
  • Children of Emirati women
  • Domestic workers working in Emirati Households
  • People suffering from chronic diseases
  • Residents above 50 years old
  • People of determination
  • Pregnant women

The free test can be availed only once in four months. You can also get tested for free, regardless of which category you fall under, at a Ministry of Health and Prevention (MOHAP) screening centre.

Abu Dhabi has eased most travel measures for flight arrivals at Abu Dhabi International Airport (AUH). COVID-19 PCR test service upon arrival is now optional for travellers entering the emirate. The PCR test facility remains available in the same location on the airport as an optional service at AED 40 for passengers who would like to activate their green pass on the Al Hosn app.

Check out the list of private testing centres in Abu Dhabi here.
