Authorities in Abu Dhabi have announced that laser-based DPI tests will be done at the border that will determine if you can enter the capital.

In June, the Abu Dhabi authorities put a border patrol in place to help control the spread of COVID-19 in the emirate.

Various measures have been in place since then, with the most recent being the need to show a negative coronavirus test from the previous 48 hours to be able to pass through.

Now a rapid coronavirus screening facility has been set up at the border, at the last exit on the Sheikh Zayed Road, before the Ghantoot checkpoint.

Tests using the laser technique are believed to cost AED 50 and return results in five minutes.

Abu Dhabi Media Office's official Twitter account shared the news in the early hours of Tuesday (July 14th).

So whether you're commuting to see clients or simply checking out some of Abu Dhabi's sumptuous landmarks, this should make things easier.
