|Vaccination status||Travelling from||Quarantine||Covid-19 PCR Test|
|Vaccinated: To be fully vaccinated, you must have received two doses of the same vaccine at least 14 days before departure||Green list country||No quarantine||Test on arrival and day six|
|Any other country||No quarantine||Test on arrival, day four and day eight|
|Not vaccinated||Green list country||No quarantine||Test on arrival, day six and day nine|

Those who have not been vaccinated and are travelling from a country deemed to be high-risk will be required to quarantine for 10 days and wear a medically approved wristband.
They will be subject to quarantine at a government facility.
Passengers flying out of Abu Dhabi who still have their medically approved wristband can remove them at the airport in urgent cases, provided they have a negative PCR test result before they arrive.
