Abu Dhabi International Airport launched a new free rapid PCR COVID-19 testing for all incoming passengers.

According to Abu Dhabi Media office, the in-airport laboratory, a regions first, is among the fastest in the world, as it gives results in approximately 90 minutes

"With the capacity to test 20,000 travellers a day, the laboratory will facilitate air travel procedures and support quarantine measures," the media office said.

All passengers arriving at the airport through terminals 1 and 3 will be tested at the facility. However, travellers to Abu Dhabi need to take a Covid-19 PCR no more than 96 hours before departure and present a print-out at check-in.
