Good news if you're living or working in the capital - travel between Abu Dhabi, Al Ain and Al Dhafra will be allowed without a permit.

This update comes into effect from 6am on Tuesday, June 23rd, according to an announcement by Abu Dhabi Emergency, Crisis and Disaster Committee through the official Abu Dhain Media Office Twitter account.

However, the restrictions on travelling from Dubai into Abu Dhabi have been extended for one more week, so they're now entering a fourth week.

That means residents of Abu Dhabi will be able to leave the emirate but can not return without an approved permit. Anyone else wishing to enter Abu Dhabi will also need a permit, which can be applied for on Abu Dhabi Police's website.

The restrictions will be looked at again on June 29th.
