UAE's Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation warned UAE citizens travelling to Ethiopia to be vigilant.
The ministry has asked people to avoid visiting Oromia, Amhara, and Harari regions in light of the current situation in the country.
It has also urged emiratis to exercise caution and avoid any assemblies or demonstrations, calling on them to communicate with the UAE Embassy in Addis Ababa in case of emergency.
Ethiopia imposed a state of emergency said Saturday that the government said will remain in place for six months, as the authorities move to quell "chaos and unruliness".
The council of ministers declared the country's second emergency decree in two years on Friday evening.
It capped a tumultuous week that saw Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn resign, a strike in the country's largest region and a massive prisoner amnesty.
The government had cited "ethnic-based clashes" and "chaos and unruliness" as the reasons for the declaration.
