The temporary suspension was made to monitor the spread of coronavirus.

E-gates allowed travelers with Emirates ID to enter and exit the country. And unlike this unified ID, passport carries stamps of the countries they have recently visited.

“At Abu Dhabi airports, all passengers are required to travel with their passports since no one can pass through e-gates using his or her ID alone. The suspension covers people of all nationalities and expatriates who have registered with e-gate and are permitted to travel with IDs,” a ‘source’ was quoted as saying by Gulf News.

The report did not mention when will this suspension be lifted.
