COVID 19 Travel Guidelines & Regulations by Country/Airport

Abu Dhabi

Flying to Abu Dhabi

You will only be permitted to enter the UAE if you are a UAE national or resident with a valid visa. 

Before you can fly to Abu Dhabi, you must have ICA approval and a negative COVID-19 PCR test result. It is your responsibility to ensure that you are compliant with all ICA requirements before your flight.

The ICA service will ask for your flight booking reference, though this field is not mandatory and can be left blank. If your application is successful, you’ll receive a unique ICA approval number, which you will need when you check-in for your flight. If you do not have ICA approval, you will not be accepted at check-in.

If Abu Dhabi is your final destination, it is compulsory to have ICA approval and present a negative COVID-19 PCR test result at check-in. The result must be issued by an ICA-approved medical facility and you must travel within 96 hours of conducting your test. You’ll find your closest approved medical facility at purehealth.ae. Children under the age of 12 are exempt from COVID-19 PCR testing.

If there are no approved Pure Health facilities in your country of departure or your test is positive, or you are unable to present proof of your negative COVID-19 PCR test, you will not be permitted to travel. You can rearrange your flight for free, or cancel and use the value of your flight towards your next trip with Etihad Credit. Read more

When you arrive in Abu Dhabi, you must self-isolate for 14 days. Thermal screening and PCR testing are in operation in Abu Dhabi airport.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, our arrivals lounge is closed.

COVID-19 PCR test requirements from Abu Dhabi

If you’re travelling from Abu Dhabi to Azerbaijan, Lebanon, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Seychelles, Malaysia, Thailand, South Korea or Indonesia, you may require a negative Covid-19 PCR test result before departure. Guests travelling to these and other destinations should check our travel guide for specific destination requirements.

 

We’ve teamed up with Mediclinic to conduct COVID-19 PCR tests in time for travel. Guests travelling to all our destinations from Abu Dhabi can make use of this service, as well as those crossing the Abu Dhabi border from other emirates to reach Abu Dhabi Airport. 

 

It’s simple with Mediclinic:

Note that many destinations will require the test to be conducted at a specific time before you travel. We recommend that your appointment takes place a minimum of 48 hours prior to travel.

  • Complete your PCR test at one of the Mediclinic facilities in the UAE or arrange a home visit. You will receive your test result within 24 hours:
    • Negative result: You’re ready to travel. Print your test result and proceed to check-in for your flight. Our check-in agent at Abu Dhabi Airport will review your negative result before completing check-in.
    • Positive result: You are unable to travel and will need to rearrange your flight for a future date. The Department of Health will be informed and you will be required to follow strict quarantine guidelines in the UAE.

Recommendations for travellers

 Travelling back to Canada:

Air travellers are required to undergo a health check prior to boarding. In the event that the air operator observes that the air traveller has COVID-19 symptoms, the air operator will be required to refuse to board the person for travel for a period of 14 days or until a medical certificate is presented that confirms that the symptoms that the person is exhibiting are not related to the COVID-19 virus.

 As of April 20, 2020, new measures requiring all air passengers to have a non-medical mask or face covering to cover their mouth and nose during travel will be in effect.

When travelling by air, travellers will be asked to cover their mouth and nose:

at Canadian airport screening checkpoints, where the screeners cannot always keep two metres of separation between themselves and the traveller;

when they cannot physically distance from others, or as directed by the airline employees; and

when directed to do so by a public health order or public health official.

Passengers on all flights departing or arriving at Canadian airports will also be required to demonstrate they have the necessary non-medical mask or face covering during the boarding process otherwise they will not be allowed to continue on their journey.

If you feel sick during your flight to Canada or upon arrival, you must inform the flight attendant or a Canada Border Services Agent.

If you do not have symptoms but believe you were exposed to someone who was sick with COVID-19, report this information to a Canada Border Services Agent on arrival in Canada. This is required under the Quarantine Act. The Canada Border Services Agent will provide instructions for you to follow.

Upon return to Canada:

 The Government of Canada has put in place an Emergency Order under the Quarantine Act that applies to all travellers arriving in Canada in order to slow the introduction and spread of COVID-19 in Canada.

 Your compliance with this Order is subject to monitoring, verification and enforcement. Those in violation may face detention in a quarantine facility as well as fines and/or imprisonment. 

Travellers require non-medical masks or face coverings upon arrival. Travellers can also wear homemade cloth face coverings. Masks or face coverings may be provided upon arrival as appropriate. 

Upon arrival, every traveller will need to confirm that they have a suitable place to isolate or quarantine where they will have access to basic necessities, such as food and medication. Travellers will be expected to make plans for where they will isolate or quarantine in advance of arriving to Canada. Travellers who do not have an appropriate place in which to isolate or quarantine themselves must go to a place designated by the Chief Public Health Officer of Canada. These criteria are newly applied to asymptomatic travellers.

Travellers with symptoms: mandatory isolation

If you have recently returned to Canada and you have symptoms, you must ISOLATE. This is mandatory. If required, immediate medical attention will be provided upon arrival in Canada.

Mandatory isolation means you MUST:

go directly to the place where you will isolate, without delay, and stay there for 14 days from the date you arrived in Canada

wear an appropriate mask or facial covering, especially while in transit

practise physical distancing at all times

not take public transport, go to your place of isolation using private transportation only, such as your personal vehicle

not isolate in a place where you will have contact with vulnerable individuals, including those who have an underlying medical condition, compromised immune systems, or who are 65 years of age or older

stay INSIDE, and do not leave your place of isolation unless it's to seek medical attention

arrange for the necessities of life (e.g. food, medications, cleaning supplies) to be delivered to your place of isolation

not have visitors and limit contact with others in the place of isolation, including children

If your symptoms get worse:

immediately call the public health authority to describe your symptoms and travel history

follow their instructions carefully

Travellers without symptoms: mandatory quarantine

 If you have recently returned to Canada and you have no symptoms, you must QUARANTINE yourself. This is mandatory. You are at risk of developing symptoms and infecting others.

This means you MUST:

go directly to your place of quarantine, without delay, and stay there for 14 days from the date you arrived in Canada, or longer if you develop signs and symptoms of COVID-19, or have been exposed to another person subject to the Order who has signs and symptoms of COVID-19

ensure you wear an appropriate mask or facial covering, especially while in transit

practise physical distancing at all times

go to your place of quarantine using private transportation, such as your personal vehicle, if possible

not quarantine in a place where you will have contact with vulnerable individuals, including those who have an underlying medical condition, compromised immune systems, or who are 65 years of age or older

stay at your place of quarantine, and do not leave unless it's to seek medical attention

not use public transportation (e.g. buses, taxis) while in quarantine

not have visitors and limit contact with others in the place of quarantine, including children and those who have not travelled nor been exposed to the virus

not go to school, work or any other public areas

arrange for the necessities of life (e.g. food, medications, cleaning supplies) to be delivered to your place of quarantine

If you develop symptoms within 14 days:

isolate yourself from others

immediately call the public health authority to describe your symptoms and travel history

follow their instructions carefully

As the continued global movement of goods and people and the ongoing delivery of essential services will be important for Canada's response to COVID-19, there are some exemptions to the order to self-isolate for certain workers listed as an essential service.

Recommendations for travellers

 Travelling back to Canada:

Air travellers are required to undergo a health check prior to boarding. In the event that the air operator observes that the air traveller has COVID-19 symptoms, the air operator will be required to refuse to board the person for travel for a period of 14 days or until a medical certificate is presented that confirms that the symptoms that the person is exhibiting are not related to the COVID-19 virus.

 As of April 20, 2020, new measures requiring all air passengers to have a non-medical mask or face covering to cover their mouth and nose during travel will be in effect.

When travelling by air, travellers will be asked to cover their mouth and nose:

at Canadian airport screening checkpoints, where the screeners cannot always keep two metres of separation between themselves and the traveller;

when they cannot physically distance from others, or as directed by the airline employees; and

when directed to do so by a public health order or public health official.

Passengers on all flights departing or arriving at Canadian airports will also be required to demonstrate they have the necessary non-medical mask or face covering during the boarding process otherwise they will not be allowed to continue on their journey.

If you feel sick during your flight to Canada or upon arrival, you must inform the flight attendant or a Canada Border Services Agent.

If you do not have symptoms but believe you were exposed to someone who was sick with COVID-19, report this information to a Canada Border Services Agent on arrival in Canada. This is required under the Quarantine Act. The Canada Border Services Agent will provide instructions for you to follow.

Upon return to Canada:

 The Government of Canada has put in place an Emergency Order under the Quarantine Act that applies to all travellers arriving in Canada in order to slow the introduction and spread of COVID-19 in Canada.

 Your compliance with this Order is subject to monitoring, verification and enforcement. Those in violation may face detention in a quarantine facility as well as fines and/or imprisonment. 

Travellers require non-medical masks or face coverings upon arrival. Travellers can also wear homemade cloth face coverings. Masks or face coverings may be provided upon arrival as appropriate. 

Upon arrival, every traveller will need to confirm that they have a suitable place to isolate or quarantine where they will have access to basic necessities, such as food and medication. Travellers will be expected to make plans for where they will isolate or quarantine in advance of arriving to Canada. Travellers who do not have an appropriate place in which to isolate or quarantine themselves must go to a place designated by the Chief Public Health Officer of Canada. These criteria are newly applied to asymptomatic travellers.

Travellers with symptoms: mandatory isolation

If you have recently returned to Canada and you have symptoms, you must ISOLATE. This is mandatory. If required, immediate medical attention will be provided upon arrival in Canada.

Mandatory isolation means you MUST:

go directly to the place where you will isolate, without delay, and stay there for 14 days from the date you arrived in Canada

wear an appropriate mask or facial covering, especially while in transit

practise physical distancing at all times

not take public transport, go to your place of isolation using private transportation only, such as your personal vehicle

not isolate in a place where you will have contact with vulnerable individuals, including those who have an underlying medical condition, compromised immune systems, or who are 65 years of age or older

stay INSIDE, and do not leave your place of isolation unless it's to seek medical attention

arrange for the necessities of life (e.g. food, medications, cleaning supplies) to be delivered to your place of isolation

not have visitors and limit contact with others in the place of isolation, including children

If your symptoms get worse:

immediately call the public health authority to describe your symptoms and travel history

follow their instructions carefully

Travellers without symptoms: mandatory quarantine

 If you have recently returned to Canada and you have no symptoms, you must QUARANTINE yourself. This is mandatory. You are at risk of developing symptoms and infecting others.

This means you MUST:

go directly to your place of quarantine, without delay, and stay there for 14 days from the date you arrived in Canada, or longer if you develop signs and symptoms of COVID-19, or have been exposed to another person subject to the Order who has signs and symptoms of COVID-19

ensure you wear an appropriate mask or facial covering, especially while in transit

practise physical distancing at all times

go to your place of quarantine using private transportation, such as your personal vehicle, if possible

not quarantine in a place where you will have contact with vulnerable individuals, including those who have an underlying medical condition, compromised immune systems, or who are 65 years of age or older

stay at your place of quarantine, and do not leave unless it's to seek medical attention

not use public transportation (e.g. buses, taxis) while in quarantine

not have visitors and limit contact with others in the place of quarantine, including children and those who have not travelled nor been exposed to the virus

not go to school, work or any other public areas

arrange for the necessities of life (e.g. food, medications, cleaning supplies) to be delivered to your place of quarantine

If you develop symptoms within 14 days:

isolate yourself from others

immediately call the public health authority to describe your symptoms and travel history

follow their instructions carefully

As the continued global movement of goods and people and the ongoing delivery of essential services will be important for Canada's response to COVID-19, there are some exemptions to the order to self-isolate for certain workers listed as an essential service.
