The pass is a mobile app that enables passengers to create a ‘digital passport’ easily and securely verify their pre-travel test or vaccination meets the requirements of the destination.

Passengers will also be able to share the test and vaccination certificates with authorities and airlines to facilitate travel.

The new app will also enable travellers to manage all travel documentation digitally and seamlessly throughout the travel experience.

Prior to a full roll out, Emirates will implement phase 1 in Dubai for the validation of COVID-19 PCR tests before departure.
