Abu Dhabi cancels quarantine requirement for vaccinated travelers
  • Vaccinated people arriving from green countries must take a nasal swab test on arrival

DUBAI: Vaccinated travelers entering Abu Dhabi from any destination will no longer be required to quarantine starting Sept. 5, the Emergency, Crisis and Disasters Committee said.

All passengers, both vaccinated and unvaccinated, are required to present negative coronavirus test results from within 48 hours of departure before boarding to the UAE capital, state news agency WAM reported. 

Vaccinated people arriving from green countries must take a nasal swab test on arrival without the need to quarantine, and another test on day six, if staying in the emirate. 

Those arriving from other destinations must take a nasal swab test on arrival without the need to quarantine, and further tests on days four and eight, if staying in Abu Dhabi.

The UAE has recorded a total of 719,355 infections, 2,043 deaths and 706,644 recoveries.
