DOHA: Qatar has been added to Abu Dhabi’s updated list of countries and destinations from which travellers can enter the emirate without the need to go into quarantine, Abu Dhabi’s The National has reported.

In the updated ‘green list’ of countries, regions and territories that require no quarantine in Abu Dhabi, Qatar is the most recent addition, the paper said.

Originally published in December, the list is updated every two weeks. In addition to Qatar’s inclusion, Oman, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait have been added to the list since it was first published.

Australia, Greece, Greenland, Malaysia and Singapore, however, have been removed from the original list of 16 destinations, the paper adds.

PCR tests

All international travellers to Abu Dhabi must present a negative PCR test result and take a second PCR test upon entering the capital.

Travellers from ‘green’ destinations do not need to isolate once they receive a negative test result. Travellers from other countries need to self-isolate for 10 days.

Anyone staying in Abu Dhabi must take a PCR test six days after their arrival, and then again on day 12 of their visit, for those staying for 12 consecutive days or longer, the paper adds.

Qatar and former blockading countries signed a reconciliation agreement on 5 January to restore diplomatic relations.
