People who plan to enter Abu Dhabi must get their COVID-19 tests done outside the emirate.

That's according to the Abu Dhabi Media Office, which clarified that tests taken in the capital will not be valid for entry.

Tests must be taken at any hospital or screening centre affiliated to the National Screening Programme outside Abu Dhabi within 48 hours of the planned trip.

Text messages with the "negative result" must be presented at the time of entry.

It's part of efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19.
