Abu Dhabi has updated its ‘green list’ of destinations to include 31 countries in total – up from 28 in the previous update, effective from Thursday, June 24.

While Austria, Denmark, Italy, Norway and Sweden have been added to the list, Cuba and Kyrgyzstan have been removed, according to the update issued by the Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi (DCT) on Wednesday.

The UK, which was removed in the previous update, has not yet been added back to the list.

Passengers arriving from the ‘green list’ destinations are exempt from mandatory quarantine measures after landing in Abu Dhabi and will only be required to undergo PCR testing upon arrival at Abu Dhabi airport.
