Covid, Safety measures

Authorities in Abu Dhabi announced a new list of Covid-19 safety measures on Saturday. The new rules limit entry to public spaces to Covid-vaccinated people (green pass protocol to reflect on AlHosn app); increase operating capacity at malls and eateries, among others; and define the process for visitors to register their vaccination certificates issued abroad.

To maintain the vaccinated status on AlHosn app, a booster dose must be taken six months after receiving the second dose. A grace period of 30 days is given. Only visitors that have a green status on AlHosn app will be allowed to enter some public places from August 20. Visitors will need to download and register on the AlHosn app, using the UID and phone number used for ICA registration or when taking a PCR test in the UAE.
