Exemptions are permitted by special permit for employees, those working in vital sectors, chronic disease patients visiting hospitals and the transportation of vital goods.

Those exempt from restrictions must apply for permission to travel and those travelling from Abu Dhabi Airport are also exempt from travel restrictions.
