UAE residents need Covid-negative test to enter Abu Dhabi
They should have received the results in 48 hours prior to their visit.
UAE residents and visitors need a Covid-negative test result to enter Abu Dhabi, authorities announced on Monday. They should have received the results in 48 hours prior to their visit.
The Abu Dhabi Emergency, Crisis and Disaster Committee for the Covid-19 Pandemic said the negative test results must be shown via the AlHosn app or as a text message from any hospital or screening centre in the UAE affiliated to the National Screening Programme.

Entry of non-Abu Dhabi-based workers is still prohibited. "The movement of mail and all types of goods is exempted," the Abu Dhabi Media Office tweeted on Monday.
The authorities reminded residents that they must continue to "adhere to all precautionary measures, including wearing masks and observing physical distancing inside vehicles".
"This follows continued positive outcomes in curbing the spread of Covid-19 in the emirate," the media office tweeted.
Abu Dhabi had imposed movement restrictions on June 2 to ensure mass Covid-19 testing in order to contain the spread of the virus. Movement to and from the emirate and between its regions was not allowed without a permit.
Last week, the restrictions were partially lifted, with residents being allowed to move between the regions (Abu Dhabi, Al Ain and Al Dhafra). Residents were also allowed to travel out of Abu Dhabi, but were required to get a permit to enter back.
