Hello Everyone

Please have in mind this topic is subject to be OUTDATED at any time because the rules are changing from time to time. But let us take the best of it to continue our drives back to Abu Dhabi region !!!

Step 1:

Find the nearest DPI test centre next to you, I’m giving EHC in Ajman as an example since it has 24/7 service

Google Maps Location:

Step 2 :

- Use your EMIRATES ID only to get identified
- Use CARD for payments, NO CASH (50)dhs

Step 3:

- Do the DPI test
- Give your mobile number
- You are going to receive a TEXT msg within minutes or you can request of a printed result from the same place before leaving

Good Luck and we are looking forward to see you in the sand

Summary of the rules:

According to the latest resolution effective 5th of September, all visitors/residence entering the Emirate of Abu Dhabi will have the choice of taking either a PCR or DPI (Laser instant results) test. Any of those 2 tests will be valid for 48 hours to enter the emirate.

For the citizens/visitors that are to remain within the Emirate, the test will be valid for 6 days. If there will be additional time needed for the individual to remain within the emirate longer then a new test will need to be taken.

The new results are valid on a permanent basis. No additional test is needed for as long as you remain within the Abu Dhabi.
