Covid cases in the UAE: validity of Green Passes, masks, travel rules; everything you need to know

Authorities have reimposed curbs that had been lifted due to the recent increase in Covid-19 cases. These new Covid-safety rules are urged upon residents:

Green passes on the Al Hosn app now only have a 14-day validity instead of 30 days. If the resident tests negative, then they will receive a 14-day Green Pass.

To enter Abu Dhabi’s indoor public places and access government buildings in the UAE, a green pass is required. Those who fail to wear a mask indoors have been fined up to Dh3,000. Outdoor mask use is still voluntary.

Individuals who test positive for Covid-19 must isolate themselves for 10 days regardless of their symptoms. Additionally, their employer must be notified. Residents must have the Covid-19 DXB smart app, according to the Dubai Health Authority.

For residents of Abu Dhabi to end their quarantine period, they must take two Covid-19 PCR tests. Both tests should be negative, and there should be a gap of 24 hours between them. The UAE requires that all passengers travelling there present a valid vaccination certificate. A negative Covid-19 PCR test certificate must be presented by those who are not vaccinated within 48 hours of boarding a flight. The certificate must also include a QR code.
