Etihad Airways reiterated Covid-19 protocols flying to Abu Dhabi
Passengers flying from India to Abu Dhabi have to isolate for 12 days with a quarantine wristband, Etihad Airways says. The airline reiterated Covid-19 travel protocols for those flying to the capital from India on its website. Abu Dhabi’s Emergency, Crisis and Disasters Committee updated quarantine measures on 05th July.
The travel procedures refer to passengers arriving in the emirate from non-green list countries, such as India. Vaccinated travellers from green list countries must take a PCR test on arrival and a further test on day six. However they are not required to quarantine under the rules set out last month.
The medically-approved wristband will be provided to passengers after they clear immigration at Abu Dhabi Airport. You must also take a PCR test on arrival, day six and day eleven. Thousands of residents stuck in India after a ban on passenger flights to the UAE was announced in April are trying to get home after flight restrictions were eased last week.
Those returning to the UAE need to have valid residency and proof of having received both doses of a Covid-19 vaccine in the UAE no less than 14 days before travel.
Unvaccinated residents can return if they are school pupils, teachers, university students, lecturers, medical workers, or people who work for federal and local government.
