New booking system for Dh50 Covid-19 rapid test on Dubai-Abu Dhabi border


DUBAI – An online booking system was launched for the Dh50 rapid test at a screening centre on the Dubai-Abu Dhabi border on Thursday (July 16), a day after the facility was overwhelmed with hundreds of visitors.

On Wednesday, the screening centre was temporarily closed after hundreds of motorists queued up for testing in order to enter Abu Dhabi.

Police were seen turning away some motorists queuing for service as a huge traffic jam built up on the E11 highway heading towards the capital.

The new service gives residents and tourists an affordable test that produces results within five minutes. The test uses a laser technique to scan a blood sample.

Authorities said that a second rapid screening centre will be set up on the border to Abu Dhabi. The facility is expected to be built soon and can accommodate up to 2,000 people. ICA/Expat Media
