Vaccinated UAE Residents to Benefit From Easier Travel Procedures

The Abu Dhabi Emergency, Crisis and Disasters Committee had recently updated the travel procedures for passengers with the vaccine, the Khaleej Times reported.

In line with this, vaccinated travellers from “green” countries were scheduled to undergo PCR testing at arrival starting Monday, 3 May 2021 and without quarantine on Day 6.
