Quarantine guidelines in Abu Dhabi

Arriving in Abu Dhabi and travelling to other emirates

If you are a tourist travelling to Dubai or other emirates via Abu Dhabi, you should have an Abu Dhabi tourist visa – tourist visas issued in Dubai or other emirates will only be accepted if you originate from a green country.  When you arrive, you will simply need to follow the quarantine rules of that emirate. You will only be permitted to travel to another emirate by Etihad Chauffeur or Etihad Express Coach.
