Etihad Airways announced that it would require all guests flying from the United Kingdom to present a negative PCR test within 72 hours validity of their flight departure time.
The measure followed the announcement by the National Crisis and Disaster Management Authority, effective 24 December 2020.
In a statement today, Etihad said that PCR tests must be conducted at a government accredited medical facility. Suggested facilities can be found at etihad.com.
As many COVID-19 PCR test certificates do not currently show the date and time the test was taken, guests are required to show evidence of this at check-in, for example by presenting their appointment confirmation.
Children under 12 and people with severe and moderate disabilities are exempt from COVID-19 PCR testing.
