Visitors are not liable for a “negative test” for COVID-19 to visit the country and can easily access famous public places like shopping malls, theme parks, Etc. Without requiring the monthly ALHOSN app’s approval.
The ALHOSN app served as a Green Card for tourists coming to Dubai to enjoy the country’s spectacular sights throughout the COVID-19 period. However, now that the coronavirus is under control, The Department of Culture and Tourism, Abu Dhabi (DCT Abu Dhabi) has made significant amendments to the COVID-19 restrictions.
But for Abu Dhabi locals and working professionals, the rule is different. Explaining the latest easing of COVID-19 restrictions, NCEMA tweeted, “The Green Pass system is still a mandatory prerequisite for employees to enter their workplaces in federal authorities, as well as being linked to the tourism and economic sectors.”
Similarly, the act of imposing legal charges against the offenses such as not wearing a face mask and not having a monthly PCR test has also been abolished. NCEMA further commented that the only places people should wear face masks are hospitals, mosques, and public transport. Even students are allowed to treat face masks as an option.
Additionally, only those with chronic illnesses and showing symptoms of COVID-19 should continue to wear masks and take monthly PCR tests while maintaining a Green Pass on their ALHOSN profile. Tweeted NCEMA.
Visitors worldwide no longer need to register their vaccination status with the Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship (ICA) and check their Green Pass status on the ALHOSN app before arriving in the UAE.
Nevertheless, safety is still the highest priority. So as per the latest relief updates on the COVID-19 restrictions tweeted by NCEMA on DCT Abu Dhabi updated amendments, any tourist who tests positive for COVID-19 will be quarantined for seven days.
