In an advisory issued by the Philippine Embassy in Abu Dhabi, new testing and quarantine rules for all international arrivals were listed out.
A 14-day quarantine is mandatory. The first 10 days will have to be spent either in a hotel or an authorised facility, while the rest can be continued at home, provided that a negative RT-PCR test result is received, the advisory said.
“Testing will now be on Day 7, instead of Day 6, with Day 1 being the date of arrival and check-in,” it added.
