Abu Dhabi has been strict on movement since the outbreak of COVID-19, initially restricting movement within the city, as well as Al Dhafra and Al Ain. Two weeks ago, it was announced people could travel within the emirate freely and head to other emirates but would need a permit upon re-entry.

The COVID-19 results must be shown via the Alhosn App or text message from the hospital.

There was no end date given for the latest regulations.
