Abu Dhabi has updated its green list of countries and destinations from which travellers can enter the emirate without the need for quarantine on arrival.

22 new destinations have been added in the recent update.

The most popular holiday hot spot Maldives returned to the list after being removed earlier in August, which will be good news for those planning a trip to the Indian Ocean island destination. Apart from this, other popular holiday destinations on the list are Cyprus, Croatia, Italy, Japan, and Portugal.

Greece, which is currently in the Vaccine Corridor with the United Arab Emirates, has been added to the Green List, meaning unvaccinated travellers returning from a Mediterranean destination can now avoid isolation.
