The new rules for entering Abu Dhabi from within the UAE

by Out and About Mag.

Abu Dhabi Emergency, Crisis and Disasters Committee has updated the procedures for entering Abu Dhabi emirate from within the UAE for vaccinated citizens, residents and visitors, effective Friday, 20 August 2021.

According to the updated procedures, those vaccinated and participants in a clinical trial can enter Abu Dhabi with a green pass and an active E or star icon on the Alhosn app. A PCR test is required to show the E/star icon, which remains active for 7 days.

No further testing after entering Abu Dhabi is required for those vaccinated and participants in a clinical trial with a green pass and an active E or star icon on Alhosn if remaining in the emirate. Visitors from abroad should also follow the relevant travel protocol.

The current testing procedures for those unvaccinated to enter the emirate remains the same. This requires a PCR test within 48 hours of entry or a DPI test within 24 hours of entry and multiple additional tests if remaining in the emirate.
