Abu Dhabi starts night-time curfew as part of sterilisation programme

Abu Dhabi is introducing a night-time curfew from midnight until 5 am as part of its new sterilisation programme.

All traffic will be banned on the streets and the public will be restricted from leaving home. There will be no public transport running either in Abu Dhabi due to the sterilisation programme.

“The public must stay at home unless it is absolutely necessary to go out, or to get essential supplies, such as food and medicine.”

If you do need to leave during those times, you must get a permit from here.

Abu Dhabi has also introduced new travel restrictions. You can get access to the emirate within 48 hours of a negative PCR test and within 24 hours of a DPI test.

The region has also put a 50% capacity on all beaches, parks, and swimming pools; restaurants and cafes; gyms, and spas in hotels; and buses and public ferries.

There are even tighter restrictions for shopping malls which must operate at 40% capacity. Cinemas meanwhile can only run at 30% capacity.

You can also have a maximum of three passengers in a cab and four in a larger taxi.
