The UAE‘s comprehensive pandemic response continues apace, with a substantial percentage of the population vaccinated and COVID-19 booster injections already being provided to people. The distribution of COVID-19 immunisation certificates via the Al Hosn or DHA applications is a noteworthy aspect of this multi-faceted plan. What’s the procedure for obtaining your immunisation certificate, though? We’ve got the answers you’re looking for.
GET COVID VACCINE CERTIFICATES IN THE UNITED ARAB EMIRATES
Certain places and events in both Dubai and Abu Dhabi require participants to provide a valid vaccination certificate in order to obtain access.
In the UAE, there are two applications that may be used to obtain a COVID-19 immunisation certificate. The Al Hosn app (for Abu Dhabi and the rest of the UAE) and the DHA app (for the rest of the UAE) (Dubai). The Al Hosn app also keeps track of the user’s COVID-19 test results.
The Al Hosn app serves as a trace and track system in addition to documenting the user’s COVID-19 test results and immunisation status. If the app indicates that a user has come into touch with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, the authorities will call the user and provide further advice on isolation and other matters. As a result, it’s critical to maintain Bluetooth turned on and allow the Al Hosn app to see your current position after installing the app. Because the app has been whitelisted by Du, Etisalat, and Virgin, your data will not be utilised even if it is operating in the background. The Al Hosn app is now available in three languages: English, Arabic, and Hindi
HOW DO I GET MY COVID VACCINE CERTIFICATE IN THE UAE BY REGISTERING ON THE AL HOSN APP?
You may get Al Hosn from Google Play or the Apple Software Store, just like any other app. Please keep in mind that in order to register, you will need to provide your Emirates ID number. If you are not a UAE resident or do not have a valid Emirates ID, your “Unified Number,” which appears in the upper right corner of your visa document, is an option.
You will be prompted to input your contact number after entering the Emirates number in order to get an OTP. In the UAE, enter the code to finish the registration procedure and receive your COVID-19 vaccination certificate. You may also get a PDF version of it.
IN THE UAE, HOW DO I GET MY COVID VACCINE CERTIFICATE VIA THE DHA APP?
The COVID-19 vaccination certificates may be obtained using the DHA App by those who have been vaccinated at a Dubai Health Authority health centre. Simply download the app, register using your MRN number, and follow the on-screen instructions.
