Abu Dhabi: The Abu Dhabi Ministry of Culture and Tourism (DCT Abu Dhabi) has announced a new update of the “Green List” of countries for inbound travel to Abu Dhabi. The update is effective from January 3, 2022.

Passengers arriving from updated “Green List” destinations will be exempt from mandatory quarantine measures after landing in Abu Dhabi.

Travelers will be required to present a negative COVID-19 PCR test result valid for a maximum of 48 hours prior to departure, and undergo an additional PCR test upon arrival at Abu Dhabi International Airport. Vaccinated passengers from updated “Green List” countries will undergo another PCR test on the sixth day (the day of arrival in Abu Dhabi counts as day 1).

Unvaccinated travelers arriving from “Green List” countries will be required to take PCR tests on days six and nine.

The countries, regions and territories appearing on the “Green List” will be regularly updated according to international developments. Listing is subject to strict criteria of travel health and safety protocols, ensuring and promoting the well-being of the UAE community.

The list is regularly updated based on international developments, and the DCT has said that inclusion on the list is subject to strict criteria of health and safety protocols for travel, ensuring and prioritizing the well-being of the community of the United Arab Emirates. Countries on the “Green List” have been given the green light to travel and refer to the origin of the inbound trip, not the passenger’s citizenship.
