Maldives Back on Abu Dhabi’s COVID-19 ‘Green List’

Maldives has made its way back on the ‘green list’ compiled by Abu Dhabi, the capital of United Arab Emirates (UAE) for travelers. 

A total of 21 countries have been added to the list this time, including Maldives, Oman, Qatar, Cyprus, Croatia, Italy and Japan. No countries that were already on the list have been removed.

With the new additions, the list now consists of 55 countries, to be in effect starting 1st September 2021.

Vaccinated travellers arriving from destinations on the list will be exempt from mandatory quarantine measures after landing in Abu Dhabi. They will be required to undergo PCR testing upon arrival at Abu Dhabi International Airport, as well as another PCR test on day 6.

Unvaccinated travellers arriving from these countries are exempt from mandatory quarantine, but will also need to undergo PCR testing on arrival, as well as two further PCR tests on day 6 and 12.
