COVID-19 restrictions in Abu Dhabi have been lifted even further, with on-arrival PCR testing optional for travelers at the airport.

Abu Dhabi International Airport announced the amended protocol for travellers on its social media platforms, noting that its testing facilities are still open for anyone who desire to take the test.

The airport’s Instagram post said, “The PCR Test facility at AUH is still available in the same location for arrivals as an optional service for passengers who would like to activate their green pass on Al Hosn App, which is mandatory to enter public places, tourist attractions, commercial centres and other facilities in the emirate of Abu Dhabi.”

The announcement comes after the withdrawal of a number of preventative measures in the UAE and Abu Dhabi emirate, as the number of COVID-19 cases in the UAE continues to fall.

Recently, Abu Dhabi had made face masks optional in outdoor events, eliminated border inspections as well as the green list system, and mandatory quarantine procedures for visitors arriving from foreign countries.

Testing can be availed by arriving passengers in Terminal 1 and Terminal 3 at the airport.
