Travelling from Dubai to Abu Dhabi

Effective 19 September 2021, fully vaccinated UAE citizens, residents and tourists, as documented on the Al Hosn App, will no longer be required to test for COVID-19 at the border before entering Abu Dhabi. To be considered fully vaccinated, you must have received two doses of the same vaccine at least 28 days before departure.

Please note that although people entering Abu Dhabi from Dubai no longer need to show a test result, you will still be required to have a 'green status' on the Al Hosn app to enter many public places. People who are fully vaccinated against coronavirus remain green as long as they have a COVID 19 PCR test once every 30 days. People who are unvaccinated must be tested every three days to remain green.
