Hi Sri 

Do we need to do pcr or laser test for this drive? 

Thank you 

Hi Tamas,

Yes you will have to do the DPI (Laser) or PCR test 48 hours prior to entering Abu Dhabi. Even if you dont have an appointment you can do the DPI test at Sharjah Shooting Club (there is a separate line which takes a bit longer) or you can goto the DPI Center at Ghantoot direct on Friday morning. Due to the zero rush in the wee hours of the morning they generally donot ask for the appointment and you can walk in. I have been there a couple of times in the morning with no appointment and was able to go through, but cant confirm the same every time.

The entire procedure along with the various centers are mentioned in the below topic
