Changes to expect at Abu Dhabi malls once green pass rule is enforced


DUBAI – What changes can residents expect once the green pass rule is enforced in most public places, including malls in Abu Dhabi?

Abu Dhabi authorities last week announced that residents aged 16 and older must show a green pass on their Alhosn app starting on June 15 in order to enter public places like malls, supermarkets, restaurants, hotels, cinemas, parks and other public places.

With the new requirement to roll out on Tuesday, mall managements said they have already begun displaying information about the new entry requirement as part of an awareness campaign.

Security teams are also being trained for quick verification of green passes in order to avoid long queues at entrances. Security guards will only let green pass holders enter the mall.

Aravind Ravi, General Manager of Mushrif Mall and The Market, said security guards are expected to take “five to ten seconds” to check the Alhosn app.

Shoppers can expect to see more staff at mall entrances and even parking lots to ensure seamless implementation of the new rule.

Visitors are expected to fall in queues to get their Alhosn app checked by security teams before they are allowed entry. Checking of the app is expected to be manual, however, malls like Dalma Mall are looking at installing electronic systems to help in verifying green pass on Alhosn apps. ICA/Expat Media
