Starting July 1, Abu Dhabi will end quarantine for all international visitors.
Ali Shaiba, Executive Director of Tourism and Marketing, DCT Abu Dhabi, said that the new rule that will commence on July 1 will be similar to the Dubai system wherein the PCR protocol will be different from high-risk to low-risk destinations.
“Quarantine will be an option,” he added.
Currently, Abu Dhabi requires visitors to quarantine for 10 days unless they are from a ‘green-list’ country.
“We are announcing an extended green-list–this green-list will cover a majority of the markets that we are tapping into. Hopefully, by the first of July, everybody will be allowed to travel to Abu Dhabi,” he further added.
According to a Gulf News, the tourism executive said that the capital was monitoring new markets to make up for the loss incurred from large markets such as India, UK, and Germany being shut down.
“We’re monitoring and analyzing these markets on a weekly basis, to find out where are the opportunities (and) which markets we can tap into.. to cover the loss that we might have in other markets,” Al Shaiba said.
