Abu Dhabi Alhosn

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.

Beginning from Tuesday, June 15, 2021, it will be mandatory for access to shopping malls, large supermarkets, gyms, hotels, public parks and beaches, private beaches and swimming pools, entertainment centres, cinemas, museums, restaurants and cafés.

The Abu Dhabi Emergency, Crisis and Disasters Committee added that the use of the green pass is mandatory only for those aged 16 and over.

The committee said that the green pass addresses the emirate’s 4-pillar strategy to combat Covid-19 which is focused on vaccination, active contract tracings, safe entry and adopting preventive measures.

The Alhosn colour-coded system shows an individual’s vaccination and infection status.

It turns from green to grey once the PCR test validity ends, and to red if a test result is positive.

There are six categories and conditions under which a Alhosn colour-code status is determined.
