UAE has approved new green pass protocol on contact tracing app Alhosn app. The green pass on Alhosn shows vaccination status and Covid PCR test validity.
The aim is to ensure a safe and healthy environment for all citizens, residents and visitors.
Approving the green pass protocol, the UAE's Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHAP) has allowed federal and local authorities to determine the use of Alhosn app according to their individual needs and procedures.
A colour-coding system has been updated as per the protocol to reflect users’ vaccination status and PCR test validity.
It defines six categories: Fully vaccinated; second dose recipients; first dose recipients waiting for a second dose appointment; or are late for their second dose appointment; those exempted from receiving the vaccine; and the non-vaccinated.
For all categories, the Alhosn status will turn grey when the relevant PCR test validity ends. The status will turn red when the test result is positive and usual approved procedures will need to be followed.
