If transiting Abu Dhabi, they will continue to need a test 72 hours before departure depending on their final destination and ICA registration is not required.

Until 4 September 2021, the current testing and arrival procedures remain in place. For full details visit Abu Dhabi Travel Information. Your guests should always check etihad.com/destinationguide for the latest information before they travel.
