Abu Dhabi cancels COVID-19 entry testing for UAE travelers

DUBAI, Sept 18 (Reuters) – Abu Dhabi will cancel COVID-19 testing requirements to enter the emirate for travelers from the UAE starting on Sunday, the United Arab Emirates’ state news agency WAM said on Saturday.

The UAE’s capital had restricted entry into the emirate to those with a negative PCR test. Earlier this month, Abu Dhabi removed the need to quarantine for all vaccinated travelers arriving from international destinations.
