Abu Dhabi updates new rules to enter the emirate from within the UAE

Abu Dhabi Emergency, Crisis and Disasters Committee has updated the procedure to enter the emirate from within the UAE and approved the use of EDE scanners at entry points.

The new measures, effective Sunday, 19 December 2021, will strengthen precautionary measures to help maintain the low Covid-19 infection rate of 0.05 % in Abu Dhabi emirate.

EDE scanners use advanced technology to rapidly detect potential Covid-19 cases without storing personal information. Potential positive Covid-19 cases will be referred to an on-site testing centre, with a free antigen test provided, and results within 20 minutes.
 
Abu Dhabi’s low infection rate has been achieved through the ongoing implementation of precautionary and preventive measures, including continuous testing and contact tracing, use of the green pass system, and high vaccination rates.
