The Department of Health – Abu Dhabi (DoH) commanded all healthcare facilities in the emirate to implement the Covid-19 PCR test at a fixed cost of AED 65. Other services are now available to meet the customers' critical needs, with the express service set at either AED 350 for results within one to two hours or AED 250 for results within two to five hours.
This is in line with the aims to counter the needs of all community members of the emirate, ensure they have access to services whenever they need them and support the exceptional round-the-clock efforts of healthcare workers in protecting the health and safety of the community.
DoH explained that those required to get a Covid-19 PCR test from the convenience of their home should contact and coordinate with the healthcare facilities, noting that an additional fee will be applied.
The department also highlighted that the cost of the PCR test should be covered by the individuals themselves if they don't have any symptoms. Otherwise, the expense would be covered by government-funded programmes.
