COVID-19: The Al Hosn Green Pass PCR test is now valid for 30 days for fully vaccinated people

Dubai: Fully vaccinated citizens and residents will now have the validity of their Green Pass PCR on Al Hosn increased from 14 to 30 days, it was announced on Friday.

According to the latest updates announced by the Abu Dhabi Emergencies, Crises and Disasters Committee, the validity of the Green Pass PCR test will be increased from 14 to 30 days from Friday. However, people have been advised to wear face masks in closed areas.

Before the update, the validity of the green pass was set at 14 days. This change took effect in December 2021 when COVID restrictions were tightened due to the Omicron variant.

Having a green pass on the Al Hosn app is still required to enter public places in Abu Dhabi, including malls, exhibitions and restaurants.

The new development is part of a series of measures taken by the committee, including a return to 100% operational capacity of all commercial activities, tourist attractions and events in the emirate.

However, masks must continue to be worn in indoor spaces, the committee said, adding that the updates are effective from Friday in line with the continued low COVID-19 infection rate.

Al Hosn is the official app of the United Arab Emirates for contact tracing and health testing related to COVID-19, introduced by the National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority. The app helps trace people who have been near confirmed cases of COVID-19 to prevent the spread of the virus. It also provides residents with access to their test results and a health color-coding system that identifies and allows those free of COVID-19 disease access to public spaces.
