For only AED50, residents can now book their appointments through the SEHA app before they head towards one of the following centers: Zayed Sports City and Corniche in Abu Dhabi, Al Hili in Al Ain, and at the National Screening Centres in Mina Rashed, Al Khawaneej, Ras Al Khaimah and Fujairah.
“Those who undergo testing will then receive an SMS enabling them to enter Abu Dhabi within 48 hours from the date of receiving the result or they will be asked to undergo a PCR test,” as per the announcement from the Abu Dhabi Government Media Office.
Abu Dhabi Health Services Company (SEHA) stated that if the test result shows that a nose swab is required, it will be done right away and the customer will need to isolate himself until the result is out.
Drive-through screening centres in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain will operate Saturday to Thursday from 8 am-8 pm, while the Northern Emirates locations will be open seven days a week from 10 am- 8 pm.
