Abu Dhabi Extends Movement Ban By 7 Days

The restriction of movement in Abu Dhabi has been extended by a week, starting 9 June. The restriction was put in place on 2 June when the capital conducted a mass Covid-19 testing to contain the spread. The ban was meant to last for a week.

Following this, Abu Dhabi Emergency, Crisis and Disaster Committee, in collaboration with Abu Dhabi Police and the Department of Health Abu Dhabi decided to to extend the ban for another seven days.

The ban covers movements between Abu Dhabi’s regions as well as in and out of the emirate. The movement restriction applies to all Abu Dhabi residents, including UAE Nationals. However, employees in vital sectors, and chronic disease patients visiting hospitals are exempted from the ban.

In case you need to travel during the curfew hours, a permit system is in place. You can fill out the the permits at, es.adpolice.gov.ae.

The current timings for the programme are between 10pm and 6am the following day.
