A Quick Glimpse at Abu Dhabi

A Quick Glimpse at Abu Dhabi

Abu Dhabi, one of 7 emirates comprising United Arab Emirates, had undergone dramatic transformation from Bedouin tribes wandering the desert to an affluent oil rich metropolis. It’s an ideal destination to unpack the themes of change, transformation, and uncovering hidden business opportunities.

As strict containment measures were implemented, COVID-19 impacted two important pillars of the economy: oil production and luxury tourism.

International passengers arriving at Abu Dhabi airport are required to wear a tracking device during the 14-day quarantine period.

Negative COVID-19 Certificate Required for Travel to Dubai
(Valid for up to 96 hours from time of PCR test)

Covid-19 sent the price of oil plummeting to all-time lows as people stopped moving around in order to limit the spread of the virus.
