Quarantine guidelines in Abu Dhabi

Arriving in Abu Dhabi and travelling to other emirates

If you are travelling to Dubai or another emirate via Abu Dhabi as a tourist, your visa must be issued in Abu Dhabi – Dubai tourist visas will not be accepted. 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, Etihad Express Coach or Airport Taxi.

If for any reason you are unable to travel this way, you will be required to follow standard Abu Dhabi quarantine guidelines.
