Travellers from Bahrain will no longer need to quarantine upon arrival in Abu Dhabi. The Department of Culture and Tourism in Abu Dhabi has updated its “Green List” for travellers coming to the emirate. It takes effect at 2 pm (UAE time) on 31 July. It includes Bahrain to the list of “green countries” exempted from quarantine.

Under the scheme, vaccinated travellers coming from the country included in the list will be exempted from the compulsory quarantine period when they visit Abu Dhabi. They will only be required to conduct a PCR test upon arrival at Abu Dhabi International Airport, in addition to the same COVID-19 test on the sixth day if they are staying six or more consecutive days, as well as on day 12 if they are staying for 12 or more consecutive days.

The countries and territories on the list will also be routinely updated based on the global developments of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the names of countries that meet strict health and security standards are included in order to protect the local community. The procedures of the list apply to the countries of departure from which the visitors are travelling and not only the nationality.
