Abu Dhabi has ended a policy requiring those coming in from other emirates to have a recent negative coronavirus test.
Abu Dhabi Emergency, Crisis and Disasters Committee made the announcement Saturday, saying that citizens and residents from the other emirates could enter the capital from Sunday (Sept19) without getting a coronavirus test. Abu Dhabi had restricted entry into the emirate to those with a negative PCR test.
The decision follows the announcement of a decreased COVID-19 infection rate in the emirate of 0.2 per cent of total tests and the activation of the green pass system to enter some public places.
The Crisis and Disasters Committee will continue to monitor events and urged all citizens, residents and visitors to continue adhering to precautionary measures to protect public health and safety, maintain successes, and advance the nation’s sustainable recovery.
Earlier this month, Abu Dhabi removed the need to quarantine for all vaccinated travellers arriving from international destinations.
