International Travellers Arriving In Abu Dhabi Required To Wear Quarantine Wristbands


All international travellers arriving in the capital and intending to stay in the emirate, will be fitted with an electronic wristband until the completion of a mandatory 14-day quarantine period. 

This will be in accordance with the new regulations outlined by the Abu Dhabi Emergency, Crisis and Disasters Committee to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. 

The free, medically-approved tag will be distributed to passengers arriving from all countries at any Abu Dhabi entry point. 

Once the traveller receives a negative PCR nasal swab test on the 12th day of quarantine, the tag will be removed at a medical facility on day 14 of the quarantine period. 

Passengers arriving in the country through Abu Dhabi but who will be heading to another emirate must undergo a PCR test within 96 hours of travel to the capital. 

On arrival, they will have to take a DPI laser test and if negative, will be required to sign a form stating their location and agreeing to abide by any regulations in place. 

Those who plan on staying in Abu Dhabi for a few days will still be fitted with the electronic wristband which will only be removed once they've completed the 14-day quarantine period. 

Authorities have advised passengers to plan their trips accordingly.
