Abu Dhabi updated its quarantine-free travel green list with the addition of 8 countries including the tropical holiday destination, Maldives.

Abu Dhabi updated its quarantine-free travel green list with the inclusion of the Maldives. According to The National, the Emirate added eight countries; Bahrain, Bulgaria, Czech Republic and the Maldives to the updated list.

This means that travellers who fly to and from the Maldives will no longer have to self-isolate once they arrive in Abu Dhabi.

The National reported that 12 countries were removed from the travel list including France, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and Ireland. The newspaper said that cases in these countries are increasing due to the spread of the Delta variant.

While Abu Dhabi added the Maldives to its green list, reports suggest the island nation could also move to England’s amber list in August 2021.

United Arab Emirates was one of the biggest contributors in the Maldives’ road to recovery when the island archipelago reopened its borders last year. The tropical holiday destination recorded over 6,000 tourist arrivals from UAE between 15th July 2020 and 31st December 2021.
