Abu Dhabi residents can now travel to and fro regions in Abu Dhabi but the emirate borders will be closed for another week to anyone outside.
The Abu Dhabi Media Office has announced that regions within Abu Dhabi, Al Ain and Al Dhafra are now open and welcoming visitors. You can still leave the emirate and travel to Dubai with a permit but entry back to Abu Dhabi will be restricted till further notice.
“Following promising indicators in the number of cases found in Covid-19 tests, Abu Dhabi residents may move freely between the emirate’s regions, starting from 6 am on Tuesday, June 23rd”, Abu Dhabi Government Media Office said.
“Restrictions on entering Abu Dhabi are being extended by another week, with exemptions for all types of goods and mail, and permit holders.
“Exiting the emirate borders will continue without a permit.”
These measures have been enforced as a part of the UAE government’s strategic effort to curb the spread of the coronavirus. While there is still a way to go, local hot spots, hotels, kayaking routes and tourist attractions are opening up with the necessary health and safety precautions in place to accommodate people’s needs.
While there has been an evident decrease in the average Covid19 cases in the U.A.E, the government is still continuing the National Disinfection Programme and moving forward with similar travel restrictions till the curve is completely flattened.
