UAE federal employees are being urged to avail of free PCR testing as the ‘Green Pass protocol’ comes into play from January 3. 

That’s according to the latest tweets by the Federal Authority for Government Human Resources (FAHR), which advised workers to book via the Ministry of Health and Prevention app called Shifaa or through a scannable QR code.

According to the new directive, access to government offices will be restricted to individuals who have received both jabs of the vaccine, booster shot, and a negative PCR test with a 14-day validity.
