Abu Dhabi: Tourists Can't Receive COVID-19 Vaccine

Abu Dhabi government issued a clarification about tourists visiting Abu Dhabi receiving vaccination. The capital’s government said tourists are not eligible to take a coronavirus vaccine during their stay and only Abu Dhabi residency visa-holders were eligible for the vaccine.

People who are in the emirate on expired tourist or expired residency visas are also eligible.

This includes people who arrive on a 30-day tourist visa and may wait several weeks before they receive a residency visa, and residents who are out of work or in between jobs.

"Abu Dhabi Emergency, Crisis and Disasters Committee has issued a reminder that free Covid-19 vaccines are available to everyone with an expired residency visa or expired entry visa, which does not include holders of valid tourist or visit visas," Abu Dhabi Government Media Office said.

In recent days, news concerning the capital offering free vaccines to tourist spread widely. On Thursday, the authorities said

An update to the emirate's vaccine booking app led to erroneous claims that visitors could 'fly in to get the vaccine'.
