Abu Dhabi to remove COVID-19 testing requirement from the border
Abu Dhabi has declared that it will eliminate the condition to get tested for COVID-19 before arriving at the emirate starting September 19, reported Emirates News Agency WAM.
The development comes as the UAE declared a decline of 0.2 percent corona infection rate last week.
“The committee will continue to monitor infection rates and urges all citizens, residents, and visitors to continue adhering to precautionary measures to protect public health and safety, maintain successes and advance the nation’s sustainable recovery,” Abu Dhabi’s Emergency, Crisis, and Disasters Committee stated in a post on Twitter.
