As the UAE continues to fight to keep residents safe from COVID-19, safety procedures are regularly updated.
From August 1, all travellers arriving in Abu Dhabi or stopping in the city to transfer to a final destination will be required to show evidence of a negative COVID-19 test.
Only test results from an approved testing facility will be accepted, the list of approved centres can be found by visiting screening.purehealth.ae or www.etihad.com/destinationguide.
If Abu Dhabi is your final destination, residents require ICA approval before departing to the UAE. To apply for ICA approval visit beta.smartservices.ica.gov.ae.
Children under the age of 12 and people of determination are not required to undergo testing for COVID-19.
Travellers flying from Abu Dhabi to the European Union or United Kingdom must also show a negative COVID-19 test before departing the UAE.
Those without a negative test result will not be permitted to travel to Europe or the UK.
Etihad is collaborating with Mediclinic to offer home testing services for those planning to travel.
