Abu Dhabi removes border EDE scanners and requirements for green pass from 28 March 2022

Abu Dhabi removes border requirements for entering the emirate next week. Those entering the capital will no longer need a green pass and EDE scanners will no longer be used at the border. The major COVID-19 news comes into effect on Monday February 28. The news was announced by the Abu Dhabi Emergency, Crisis and Disasters committee that the removal of EDE scanners and requirements for green pass to enter Abu Dhabi from within the UAE would take effect early next week.

This will be the first time in 2022 that travellers from within the UAE will be able to enter Abu Dhabi without the EDE scanners and green pass requirement.

The news comes as the UAE has had a significant decrease in COVID-19 cases combined with high vaccination and booster jab rates.

The green pass will still be used to enter public spaces in Abu Dhabi. Green pass validity is currently 14 days. This still means that people need a PCR test at least every two weeks to maintain green status on the Al Hosn app, which will allow them to enter public places such as malls and restaurants.
