The new directive will come into effect from 15 June
Officials in Abu Dhabi confirmed on Wednesday night that the new Alhosn green pass, introduced earlier this week, will be necessary to gain entry to most public spaces and facilities within the emirate.
From Tuesday, 15 June, 2021, the green pass will be mandatory for access to shopping malls, large supermarkets, gyms, hotels, public parks and beaches, private beaches, swimming pools, entertainment centres, cinemas, museums, restaurants and cafés.
The Abu Dhabi Emergency, Crisis and Disasters Committee added that its use is only mandatory for those aged 16 and over.
The Alhosn colour-coded system shows an individual’s vaccination and infection status. There are six categories and conditions under which a Alhosn colour-code status is determined. The status turns from green to grey once the PCR test validity ends and turn red if a test result is positive.
The green pass addresses the emirate’s four-pillar strategy to combat the spread of Covid-19, which is focused on vaccination, active tracing, safe entry and adopting preventive measures.
