Abu Dhabi International Airport announced on Monday that travellers no longer need to take a PCR test when landing in the capital’s airport.

"Following the latest UAE government directives, guests will not need to take a PCR test on arrival in Abu Dhabi. Guests who choose to take a PCR test on arrival can take advantage of the arrivals testing facility at Abu Dhabi International Airport at their own expense for Dh40 ($11) per test," confirmed a spokesperson for Etihad.

"Etihad continues to follow UAE and international government, regulatory and health authority directives, and is playing its part in helping to limit the spread of Covid-19."

More information on the regulations is available on etihad.com/destinationguide.

The news comes a little more than a week after the UAE relaxed its Covid-19 rules for travellers, dropping pre-departure tests for vaccinated travellers.

On February 26, Etihad Airways also confirmed that travellers flying with the airline no longer needed a negative PCR test result to board flights, unless it is a requirement of their final destination.

Unvaccinated travellers flying to the UAE must continue to present a negative PCR test result taken within 48 hours of their departure, or display a certificate of Covid-19 recovery dated with 30 days of their flight. Children under 16 are exempt from these requirements.
