Abu Dhabi’s Department of Culture and Tourism (DCT) has once again updated its Green List of countries from which passengers can land in the emirate without the need for quarantine, provided they take a PCR test on arrival.

Denmark, Finland, Italy and Norway were all added to the list, while Kyrgyzstan was removed.

A statement from the DCT said the list will be updated regularly dependent on international developments and based on a strict basis of health and safety criteria for the wellbeing of the UAE community.

Russia was removed from the list earlier this week due to a spike in COVID-19 cases.

Countries, regions, and territories included within the Green List will be regularly updated based on international development.

Inclusion in the list is subject to strict criteria of health and safety to ensure the well-being of the UAE community. The list also only applies to countries passengers are arriving from rather than citizenship.
