Abu Dhabi residents can now travel and return home freely without prior ICA approval to return to the UAE.
However, before booking flights to or from Abu Dhabi, residents are required to visit uaeentry.ica.gov.ae. In the website, they need to submit their passport details and Emirates ID number in order to obtain instant verification of their UAE entry status, in accordance with their UAE residence visa validity.
Meanwhile, travelers on all Etihad flights to, from and via Abu Dhabi will be required to secure Covid-19 PCR test.
Children under the age of 12 and people of determination are exempt from the Covid-19 PCR test requirement.
