Mandatory quarantine for travellers from Doha to Abu Dhabi

  • Doha News

Citizens and residents traveling to Abu Dhabi from Doha will now have to go through mandatory quarantine measures.

Due to a surge of COVID-19 cases in the United Arab Emirates and Qatar, Abu Dhabi updated its ‘green list’ destinations to exclude the neighbouring Gulf state, authorities confirmed.

Effective February 7, travellers arriving in the Emirati capital from Qatar, Bahrain, Maldives, Oman, Thailand, Falkland Islands and St. Kitts and Nevis will be required to quarantine, among other precautionary regulations.

Previously, passengers arriving from Qatar were exempt from mandatory quarantine measures and were only be required to undergo PCR testing before and upon arrival at Abu Dhabi airport.

However, the two Gulf states have been battling a surge in coronavirus infections in recent weeks.

On Sunday, the UAE reported over 3,000 new COVID-19 cases, bringing the total number of active infections to 19,815.

In an effort to flatten the curve, Abu Dhabi announced new restrictions in the last week, including banning all parties and gatherings, closing all movie theatres, and now updating its green list.
