During a briefing held by the National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority (NCEMA) has announced changes to the validity period of the ‘green status’ on the Al hosn app and the maintenance of the mask mandate in the UAE.
The Authority took the opportunity to reaffirm how well the UAE has handled the Covid-19 pandemic, but is now encouraging the public to remain vigilant against the spread of the virus.
Validity of the Green Pass
Under the new regulations, the validity of the Green Pass on the UAE’s official Alhosn app for the Covid-19 registry has been reduced to 14 days, instead of 30 days.
In April, the validity for ‘green status’ on the Alhosn app was extended to thirty days, but this extension has now been withdrawn.
Its validity has been reduced as a measure to encourage the public to increase testing frequency and maintain social security to further reduce the spread of the virus in the UAE.
