Abu Dhabi extends green list of countries and destinations

Published on : Tuesday, August 31, 2021


Abu Dhabi has extended its green list of countries and destinations. It means travellers from these countries can enter the emirate without needing to quarantine on arrival.

Since the green list started, 22 new destinations have been added in Tuesday’s update. Qatar has also been added to the green list.

Neighbouring Oman, which is set to open to vaccinated travellers from Wednesday, is one of the more notable additions.

Other popular places for holidaymakers on the updated list are Cyprus, Croatia, Italy, Japan and Portugal.

Greece, which is currently in a vaccine corridor with the UAE, is now included in the green list.

It implies that unvaccinated travellers returning from the Mediterranean destination can now also avoid isolation.

The new list will come into effect at 12.01 am on Wednesday. Travellers coming from destinations on the list do not need to quarantine in the UAE capital.

Originally published in December, the Abu Dhabi green list is updated regularly, depending on the countries’ Covid-19 situations. No destinations were removed from the list in the most recent update.

However, other countries popular with residents living in the UAE and holidaymakers, including the UK and the US, remain absent.

Abu Dhabi quarantine rules for countries not in the green list

Anyone flying into Abu Dhabi from a country that is not on the green list must follow the most recent isolation rules. It includes wearing an electronic wrist tracker.

If you have been fully vaccinated against Covid-19 with a final dose received at least 28 days before travel, you can skip quarantine rules when travelling between Abu Dhabi and Bahrain, Greece, Serbia and Seychelles.

From all other destinations, quarantine applies to both vaccinated and unvaccinated travellers, with different lengths of isolation.

Vaccinated arrivals must quarantine for seven days, while unvaccinated travellers should isolate for 10 days.
