The Covid situation is stabilising in the UAE, with daily cases dropping sharply over the past few weeks. The country’s health sector is putting in extraordinary efforts to keep its residents and visitors safe.

The UAE has an official Covid app called Al Hosn. Visit Abu Dhabi advises tourists to download and register on the app before their journey. “It will keep you safe and make your Abu Dhabi trip smooth and secure.”

Entry to most public places and attractions in the UAE Capital is only allowed for those who have a ‘green’ status on the Al Hosn app. To maintain the green status, vaccinated travellers must receive a negative PCR test result every 14 days. Unvaccinated tourists must get a negative PCR test result every two days.

Here is how tourists can register on the app before their arrival:

- Download AlHosn app

- Click on the ‘visitor’ icon

- Select ‘register’

- Fill in your details (ensure that the mobile number you provide is the same you will submit to the ICP when you arrive in the UAE)

- Review your information and continue

- Enter the six-digit OTP sent to your mobile phone

- Verify your profile after arriving in the UAE.

Here is a video of the 7-step process:

Green pass

Visitors with an official vaccine exemption must receive a negative PCR test result every seven days for the green status. Children aged under 12 years automatically get the green status without being vaccinated or getting a PCR test.
