There are currently no quarantine requirements for passengers from the UAE in either the Maldives or Seychelles.

But because neither country appears on the most up-to-date version of Abu Dhabi’s Green List, you’ll have to quarantine on your return to Abu Dhabi for 10 days.

If you are looking for a completely quarantine-free round trip, Morocco is currently your only option. There is zero quarantine requirement for UAE nationals and citizens arriving in the North African country from Abu Dhabi, and because of Green List privileges, no self-isolation on the way back.
