Abu Dhabi Emergency, Crisis and Disaster Committee updated its procedures for motorists entering Abu Dhabi.
Motorists are now required to have either a PCR or DPI negative test result that was taken a maximum of 48 hours prior to the entry. Those who are staying in the emirate are required to take a PCR test on the 6th day of entering the capital.
The rule applies to all UAE residents, including returning Abu Dhabi residents. The rule does not apply to Abu Dhabi residents who did not leave the emirate. Those who fail to take a test are eligible for fines and legal procedures.
Volunteers of the COVID-19 vaccine trials are exempt from these procedures. They are authorised to use the emergency vehicle lane to travel smoothly.
