Do I need a Green Pass to enter Abu Dhabi?
You no longer need a Green Pass to enter the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, either by road or by air, but the Green Pass is still required to access most public areas, including malls, hotels, restaurants and gyms. Although some tourist attractions, events and cultural sites now accept negative PCR tests (within 48 hours) in place of the Green Pass.
What if I am not fully vaccinated?
You can still get an Alhosn Green Pass if you are not fully vaccinated (i.e. you have received both doses of the vaccine and a booster six months after receiving your second dose) – the length of the pass -passing after a negative PCR test will just have a shorter duration.
Those with active, doctor-approved exemptions hold Green Pass status valid for a period of seven days from a negative PCR test.
People who have recently recovered from Covid — 11 days after testing positive, you will receive a Green Pass valid for 30 days. After that, a negative PCR test will be required, for a 14-day Green Pass tracking window.
Starting with Match 24 2022, unvaccinated or partially vaccinated people can get a 48-hour Green Pass with a negative PCR test.
Children under 16 are not required to take PCR tests.

How Tourists Prove They’ve Been Vaccinated
Vaccination certificates will be essential for those wishing to enter the UAE on these updated rules. Tourists must register their documents on the ICA website five days before the departure date. We recommend doing this on the desktop site, as there are more features reported.
First step, download the ICA application and complete the form in the Register Arrival section. Here you will be able to upload your vaccination certificates and once completed you will receive an SMS with a link to download the Alhosn app. You will need to use the same phone number on the ICA app that you use for the Alhosn app – we recommend using a UAE SIM card (you can change the phone number registered with ICA via the ICA app).
Then you will need a UID number, this can be provided at the airport when you arrive or via the ICA website. This is essential to set up your profile on the Alhosn app. You will need to link a phone number to the Alhosn account (the same one you used for the ICA).
If you are having problems with your Alhosn app
If you have any problems with the application, there is a support service – ISTIJABA. You can reach the Pandemic Knowledge Center by calling 800 1717 in the United Arab Emirates or (00971) 800 1717 from outside the country.
