Currently, travel to the UAE is restricted from some countries, including India and Pakistan.
Tourists would need to be fully vaccinated with a World Health Organisation-approved jab.
Travellers can register their vaccination certificates issued abroad via the Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship (ICA) platform or AlHosn app.
Here are the 5 steps to follow to do this:
>> Step 1: Before departure, visitors need to register in the ‘Register Arrivals’ section of the ICA mobile application.
>> Step 2: Complete the ‘register arrivals’ form and upload a vaccination certificate issued abroad. Visitors will then receive an SMS, including a link to download AlHosn app.
>> Step 3: On arriving in the UAE, visitors will receive a Unified Identification Number (UID) either at the airport or via the ICA app or website.
>> Step 4: 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.
>> Step 5: Visitors will receive a one-time password (OTP) to complete the AlHosn app registration process. Al Hosn app allows users to check status, vaccination information, test results and travel test requirements and use a live QR code.
