The Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi (DCT Abu Dhabi) has updated the ‘Green List’ of countries for inbound travel into Abu Dhabi.

All travellers arriving from the updated ‘Green List’ destinations will be exempt from mandatory quarantine measures after landing in Abu Dhabi.

The newly announced list, which will come into effect from January 3, has 71 countries.

Turkey, Jordan, Qatar, Russia, Lebanon and the United Kingdom have been removed from the earlier list while Algeria, Morocco, Seychelles and Tunisia have been added.

Travellers will be required to present a negative PCR Covid-19 test result valid for a maximum of 48 hours before departure, and undergo an additional PCR test upon arrival at Abu Dhabi International Airport. Vaccinated passengers from the updated ‘Green List’ countries will take another PCR test on day 6 (the day of arrival into Abu Dhabi counts as day 1). Unvaccinated travellers arriving from ‘Green List’ countries will must take PCR tests on days 6 and 9.

Countries, regions, and territories included on the ‘Green List’ will be regularly updated based on international developments. Inclusion on the list is subject to strict criteria of health and safety protocols for travel, ensuring and prioritising the well-being of the UAE community.

The countries on the ‘Green List’ have been given the green light for travel and refer to inbound travel origin, not citizenship of passenger.
