Permits still needed to get into the capital from Dubai

Update to Abu Dhabi travel ban means no permits needed within the emirate

Travel between Abu Dhabi, Al Ain and Al Dhafra will be allowed without a permit from 6am on Tuesday June 23.

However, the restrictions on travelling from Dubai into Abu Dhabi have been extended for one more week.

That means residents of Abu Dhabi will be able to leave the emirate but can not return without an approved permit. Anyone else wishing to enter Abu Dhabi will also need a permit.

The restrictions will be looked at again on June 29.

The news was announced by the Abu Dhabi Emergency, Crisis and Disaster Committee through the official Abu Dhain Media Office Twitter account.

You can apply for a permit to enter Abu Dhabi here.

Upon re-entry travelers will be subject to ‘precautionary health measures’.
