Union: Facilitating the return of residents from abroad through "prior approval"
The National Crisis and Emergency Management Authority and the Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship have approved the second phase of the Resident Return Program with the provision of a pre-approval service, so that residents of Abu Dhabi Emirate can easily return to the country without having to wait for approvals while they are abroad.
This step implies good news for Etihad Airways guests residing inside and outside the country, especially as it coincides with the return of schools, universities, various commercial activities, and social and service facilities in Abu Dhabi.
Residents of the country are now able to return to Abu Dhabi easily and easily without the need to register and wait for the approval of the Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship, and instead they can perform the immediate pre-approval process before the process of booking their tickets.
Before starting to book tickets, residents are advised to visit the easy-to-use website https://uaeentry.ica.gov.ae and update the Emirates ID number and passport number in order to verify their entry status into the country in line with the validity of their residence visa in the UAE.
And all passengers arriving in or via Abu Dhabi on Etihad Airways flights are still required to show negative results for a new Corona test from a government-approved medical center. More information is available on the website www.etihad.com/destinationguide, and a PCR examination must be performed within 96 hours of their departure to Abu Dhabi and a negative certificate of analysis should be presented, noting that children under the age of twelve and people of determination who suffer from moderate or severe disability are exempt from the examination. At present. For those coming from the United States of America, departure must be completed within 96 hours of receiving a negative test result for the emerging corona virus.
