In a statement issued on Sunday, the Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi (DCT Abu Dhabi) said passengers arriving from the Green List destinations will be exempt from mandatory quarantine measures after landing in Abu Dhabi and will only be required to undergo PCR testing upon arrival at the Abu Dhabi airport.

Authorities have added Malta to the updated list of destinations from which visitors will not have to quarantine.

However, the UK and Tajikistan, which have been on the Green List since April, were removed.

Currently, the UAE is on the UK's red list of destinations and passengers from here have to first quarantine in hotels.

Countries, regions, and territories included within the Green List will be regularly updated based on international developments.

Inclusion in the list is subject to strict criteria of health and safety to ensure the well-being of the UAE community.

The list also only applies to countries passengers are arriving from rather than citizenship.
