Updated COVID-19 Rules for Entering UAE by Land

COVID-19 rules for people entering the UAE through land have been updated and will go into effect on March 29. The National Emergency Crisis and Disasters Management Authority (NCEMA) and the Federal Authority for Identity, Citizenship, Customs, and Port Security have announced the update.

According to WAM’s report of the update, all those coming to the UAE, including the vaccinated and unvaccinated, do not need to conduct a pre-departure PCR test. However, they have to undertake the rapid Exponential Deep Examination (EDE) and they won't be allowed entry before the EDE tests appear. All the vehicle occupants have to perform the EDE as a precondition to enter the country.

The two authorities also stressed the need to adhere to the Green Pass protocol upon entering various events, tourist, and cultural sites among other places that require the presentation of Green Pass for entry.

The update comes in line with the UAE's strategy to protect public health and safety in a bid to ensure the return to normalcy.
