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.
