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.

Passengers from none-green list countries need to self-isolate for 10 days, and wear a quarantine wristband fitted at the PCR testing tent attached to the airport.
