Abu Dhabi’s Covid-19 green pass system launched — in pictures

On Tuesday morning Abu Dhabi’s new Covid-19 green pass system went live at public venues across the capital.

The safety measures require people to show their testing and vaccination status on Al Hosn, the UAE’s test and tracing app, to enter parks, beaches, malls, hotels and large supermarkets.

The app is also needed to access gyms, swimming pools, entertainment centres, restaurants and cafes.

More than five thousand shoppers made their way into Khalidiya Mall from 8am to 12.45pm on Tuesday, in an encouraging sign of public engagement in the new scheme.

“Ninety-seven per cent of the people who showed up managed to enter,” said Mayank Pal, manager of the mall.

Assistance was given to some visitors trying to access the mall.
