The green list now includes 35 countries, with 12 countries added and eight removed since the previous update

Abu Dhabi has updated its ‘green list’ of destinations to 35 in total, according to the latest update issued by the Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi (DCT).

Effective from Tuesday, July 13, a total of 12 countries have been added to the list including: Albania, Armenia, Belgium, Canada, France, Ireland, Jordan, Netherlands, Romania, Seychelles, Turkmenistan and Vatican City.

Meanwhile eight countries have been removed from the list, including: Bhutan, Brunei, Finland, Japan, Morocco, Portugal, Spain and Uzbekistan.

The previous update included 31 countries in the green 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, as well as another PCR test on day six.

Unvaccinated travellers arriving from these countries are also exempt from mandatory quarantine, but will also need to undergo PCR testing on arrival, as well as two further PCR tests on days six and 12.

The list also only applies to countries passengers are arriving from rather than citizenship.

Travellers from outside the ‘green’ list can still travel into Abu Dhabi, but are required to quarantine.
