Russian tourists will be allowed into the UAE capital under new rules

Relaxation of anti-covid rules await tourists in the emirate of Abu Dhabi. As the TURPROM correspondent was told in the press service of the Russian representative office of the Department of Culture and Tourism of Abu Dhabi (DCT Abu Dhabi), DCT has officially updated the entry protocol and the list of COVID-19 restrictions for foreign tourists.

The new rules are as follows :

  • Fully vaccinated travelers no longer need to take a PCR test before boarding a flight. Upon arrival in the emirate, they must present only an official COVID-19 vaccination certificate with a valid QR code.
  • Unvaccinated travelers will still be required to present a negative PCR test result taken within 48 hours prior to their scheduled departure or a COVID-19 recovery certificate dated within 30 days prior to departure with a valid QR code.
  • Young travelers under the age of 12 are exempt from the above certificates.

“Note that a PCR test upon arrival at Abu Dhabi International Airport is no longer mandatory for travelers, regardless of their vaccination status. However, tourists are advised to go through this process to activate their Green Pass on the Al Hosn app. As a reminder, the Green Pass will provide access to many indoor attractions in Abu Dhabi, such as shopping malls, theme parks and restaurants,” the department’s office added.

The mask regime has also been relaxed: wearing masks in the open air is no longer mandatory, this requirement remains only for enclosed spaces. Social distancing is no longer required.
