Travel to Abu Dhabi requires a negative COVID-19 PCR test

19 July 2020, 02:40 PM

Dear Trade Partner,

Guests travelling to Abu Dhabi as their final destination from Azerbaijan, Egypt, India, Lebanon, Philippines, Russia or Sri Lanka, are required to show a negative COVID-19 PCR test result received within 72 hours prior to departure from an approved clinic.

Guests travelling from Pakistan also need to be aware of a number of travel regulations in place before travel, including a negative COVID-19 test result from an approved clinic before being permitted to fly to any destination. Find out more

A list of approved clinics can be found on our travel guidelines and regulations page on If a guest does not have a negative COVID-19 PCR test certificate, they will not be permitted to board. Guests can rearrange their flight for free, or cancel and use the value of your flight towards their next trip with Etihad Credit. Full details can be found at

We encourage guests to visit to learn more about the regulations at their final destination.


Kind regards,

Duncan Bureau
