Starting 1 August 2020, all travellers flying
Etihad Airways from around the world to Abu Dhabi, and those
transferring via Abu Dhabi onto other flights, will be required to
show a negative COVID19 PCR test result from a list of approved
testing facilities, alongside their ICA approval if Abu Dhabi is
their end destination.
The PCR test must be carried out within 96 hours
prior to arrival in Abu Dhabi and a negative COVID19 PCR test
result certificate from one of the
approved clinics must be
shown for approval to board. Children under the age of 12 and
people with mild to severe disabilities are currently exempt from
this PCR test requirement.
Travellers leaving the UAE from
Abu Dhabi to any country in the European Union, the United
Kingdom, or to any country where it is mandatory by the
authorities at the destination, a negative COVID19 PCR test
result will be required within 96 hours prior to departure.
help facilitate this process, Etihad Airways is collaborating with Mediclinic Middle East to offer departing travellers the option of
convenient PRC testing, for a fee, at their home, or at Mediclinic
in Abu Dhabi, Al Ain, and Dubai prior to their travel.
All travellers arriving into Abu Dhabi as their end
destination may also be subject to further PCR screening at Abu Dhabi
