Dr. Taher Al Ameri, Official Spokesperson of the National Emergency Crisis and Disasters Management Authority (NCEMA) on Monday said that PCR tests in the country’s airports will be optional, but testing will be mandatory for those with suspected infections, adding that PCR tests will be mandatory for everyone upon the fourth day, or after symptoms appear, or if there is a change in colour from green on the Al Hosn app upon infection.

"We urge citizens coming back from the Hajj season to commit to the preventive measures, most notably by wearing face masks and refraining from leaving their homes for a period of seven days," Al Ameri stated while pointing out that local authorities may adopt additional measures if necessary.

He also highlighted the importance of using the Green Pass system on the Al Hosn app before leaving the country, according to appropriate travel protocols, noting that relevant authorities will continue monitoring violations of the preventive measures around the country.

"We have noticed the recent negligence by several people with regards to adhering to relevant preventive measures in public areas," he said.

"We are also proud of the fact that the UAE was ranked second worldwide in the Bloomberg Covid Resilience Ranking of the most resilient countries in addressing the pandemic, underscoring its efficient and flexible efforts."

"We urge the public to be aware of the importance of community responsibility and adhere to the preventive measures," he further added.
