The travel protocols of Abu Dhabi indicate that vaccinated and non-vaccinated travellers from green list destinations don’t need to quarantine
Starting with green list destinations: those who are vaccinated will not need to quarantine but must take a PCR test upon arrival and on day 6. Non-vaccinated individuals who are arriving from green list countries are also exempt from quarantine but must take a PCR test upon arrival, on day 6 and on day 12.
Those arriving from other destinations: vaccinated individuals must quarantine for 7 days, take a PCR test upon arrival and again on day 6. Those who have not been vaccinated and arriving from other destinations must quarantine for 12 days, take a PCR test upon arrival, and again on day 11.
Those travel updates apply to citizens and residents of Abu Dhabi. You are considered fully vaccinated when you’ve taken the second dose at least 28 days prior to travel and it’s documented in the vaccine report on the Alhosn app.
