Abu Dhabi has added Qatar and Oman to its "Green" list of countries it considers low-risk in terms of coronavirus exposure, a local media house has reported.

The list features 17 countries, regions or territories from where travellers returning to Abu Dhabi need not quarantine for 10 days.
“Any visitors travelling from countries, regions and territories on the ‘green’ list will be exempt from quarantine requirements and can enter the destination by following a series of procedures that include COVID-19 tests,” the outlet said, citing visitabudhabi reports.
Ahead of departure, travellers to Abu Dhabi from these places will be required to present a valid negative COVID-19 PCR test received within 96 hours before their scheduled departure.
Upon entering the emirate, they will be given a PCR test at the airport, and must wait for the negative result to be received. Upon receiving a negative COVID-19 test, travellers from ‘green’ countries need to self-isolate.
