“Etihad has partnered with IATA so that together, a globally unified approach to a travel pass can be simplified to make travel easier once governments decide what regulations are required to cross borders in either direction.”

All that you would need to do is to download the IATA Travel Pass application from the Appstore and book an appointment with Life Diagnostics at Sultan Bin Zayed the First Street or BioGenix Labs at Masdar City.

At the clinic, passengers inform reception they are participating in the IATA Travel Pass trial and should be ready to show their passport and mobile with the app already downloaded.

Once the result is ready, travelers will be able to view it on both the app and through the testing clinic’s own digital platform, and so you are ready to go!
