UAE announces new COVID-19 apps for GCC countries


New COVID-19 mobile applications will be introduced in the GCC to ease movement between countries in the region.

The new apps will contain people's vaccination status and test results taken outside of the country. 

The move has been approved by each GCC country's ministry of health.

Visitors will be required to adhere to all entry protocols, including PCR testing and presenting results. 

These apps can be used to enter places that require a green pass, provided that six months have not passed since the second COVID-19 vaccine dose or in accordance with the validity period of the booster shot approved in said countries.
