Inclusion in Abu Dhabi's travel list is dependent on the latest developments regarding a country’s Covid-19 protocols and guidelines. All international travellers to Abu Dhabi must present a negative PCR test result and take a second PCR test upon entering the capital.

Travellers from ‘green’ destinations do not need to isolate once they receive a negative test result. Travellers from other countries need to self-isolate for 10 days.
