Three-step process for COVID-19 vaccine exemptions in UAE


Residents can now follow a three-step process to get exempt from getting a COVID-19 vaccine.

According to the Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHAP), people can apply via the ministry's official website. 

Once an application has been submitted, residents will receive a message either approving or rejecting their request. 

If an application has been approved, it will automatically reflect on the Al Hosn app for users to present when needed. 

Pregnant women, children under the age of 12, vaccinated recipients outside of the country, and active COVID-19 patients all fall under the category. 

Meanwhile, those who were previously allergic to any vaccines or vaccine ingredients and individuals who are suffering from any diseases that may conflict with the vaccine will also be exempt from taking the jab. 

Residents can now apply on:
