Abu Dhabi Covid Rules: COVID-19 PCR Test Is NO Longer Required

Those travelling to Abu Dhabi from other emirates no longer need a negative COVID-19 PCR test to enter the UAE capital.

Since July 2020, it has been mandatory for anyone entering Abu Dhabi to need a negative PCR.

The changes in the rules of entry for the UAE were announced by the Abu Dhabi Emergency, Crisis and Disaster Committee over the weekend, with the rules coming into effect on Sunday, September 19, 2021.

The authorities outlined that infection rates had fallen to 0.2 per cent of the total tests undertaken as of late.

In line with this, the UAE also announced that 80% of the population has officially been vaccinated.

“The decision follows the announcement of a decreased COVID-19 infection rate in the emirate of 0.2% of total tests and the activation of the green pass system to enter some public places,”

The committee said in a statement published via the Abu Dhabi Media Office.

“The committee will continue to monitor infection rates and urges all citizens, residents and visitors to continue adhering to precautionary measures to protect public health and safety, maintain successes and advance the nation’s sustainable recovery.”

However, to enter many public places in Abu Dhabi, members of the public must have the green status on their Al Hosn app.

The last few months have seen a significant drop in positive COVID-19 cases to as little as an average of 600 per day in September 2021.

How Did Abu Dhabi become The Safest City In The World?

Abu Dhabi authorities developed a strict mass testing and vaccination programme to become the world’s safest city. As a result, Deep Knowledge Group (DKG), a London-based analytics company, has ranked Abu Dhabi as one of the top cities to respond to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Abu Dhabi authorities have done everything from door-to-door Covid testing to organising mass drives in densely populated areas to stop the spread of infection.

According to a doctor who spoke to the media earlier, Abu Dhabi is one of the only places in the world that the second wave of Covid-19 has not touched.

Dr. Sajeev Nair, a pulmonologist at the LLH Musaffah Hospital, said:

“In Abu Dhabi, the mortality rate and new Covid-19 cases are low, and this can be due to residents’ proper surveillance through routine screenings, which helps prevent the virus’s spread.

“Early detection of the disease helps patients avoid complications like pneumonia and lowers their chances of dying.”
