You need Al Hosn 'Green Pass' to access these places in Abu Dhabi

ARN News

Starting June 15, access to several places in the UAE capital will be determined by the colour code on the Al Hosn app.

Making the announcement, the Abu Dhabi Emergency, Crisis and Disasters Committee said the 'green pass' on the Al Hosn app will be needed to enter "shopping malls, large supermarkets, gyms, hotels, public parks and beaches, private beaches and swimming pools, entertainment centres, cinemas, museums, restaurants and cafes".

The decision applies to those aged 16 and above, and is based on the emirate’s "four-pillar strategy to combat COVID-19 focused on vaccination, active contract tracings, safe entry and adopting preventive measures".

The colour-coded system, which will reflect the users' vaccination status as well as the validity of COVID-19 PCR tests, was approved on Monday by the Ministry of Health and Prevention (MOHAP).

It takes into account six different categories of users.

Category 1: For vaccinated people who have received their second dose at least 28 days earlier or are volunteers in vaccine trials, a negative PCR test result will see the Alhosn status appear in green for 30 days as well as show the active icon (letter E or gold star) for seven days.

Category 2: For those who have received their second dose less than 28 days earlier, a negative PCR test result will see the Alhosn status appear in green for 14 days.

Category 3: For those who have received their first dose and are waiting for their second dose appointment, a negative PCR test result will see the Al Hosn status appear in green for seven days.

Category 4: For those who have received their first dose and are late to their second dose appointment by 48 days or more, a negative PCR test result will see the Al Hosn status appear in green for three days.

Category 5: For those with vaccine exemption certificates as per approved processes, a negative PCR test result will see the Al Hosn status appear in green for seven days.

Category 6: For those unvaccinated and do not have vaccine exemption, a negative PCR test result will see the Al Hosn status appear in green for three days.

For all categories, the Alhosn status will turn grey when the relevant PCR test validity ends.
