Negative Covid-19 test required to enter Abu Dhabi

Negative Covid-19 test required to enter Abu Dhabi

Entry into Abu Dhabi is now permitted for anyone who has tested negative for Covid-19 within a 48-hour period, authorities have announced.

In a Twitter post, the Abu Dhabi Media Office said that test results must be shown via the Alhosn App or text messages from any hospital, or any screening centre in the UAE that is affiliated to the National Screening Programme.

Exemptions from the rule will be made for the movement of mail and other types of goods.

Additionally, members of the public are required to continue to adhere to precautionary measures, including masks and social distancing.

The entry of non-Abu Dhabi based workers is still prohibited.

On June 22, Abu Dhabi extended restrictions on people entering the emirate, but announced that free movement was possible for residents between the regions of the emirate.
