Have you ever been late and hoped a taxi will come by soon? Have you ever had bills that were due the next day, but all of the offices were closed? Are you planning a trip out of the nation but don’t know where to go for credible information and booking options? Governments around the UAE have developed applications that act as a one-stop-shop for not just government but also business sector services.
These are the apps you should have on your phone if you want to complete tasks like paying bills, applying for traffic services, or checking flight information in the UAE.
Consider UAE Pass to be a single, unified account that may be used to log in to any of the other apps listed below. In 2018, the application was introduced in the UAE as a secure national digital identity. You will no longer need different identities and passwords for all of the government departments you frequently contact once you download and register the app. You can simply use your UAE Pass to log in.
You can also use the app to digitally sign documents and to access digital versions of government documents for a variety of purposes.
The Apple App Store and Google Play Store both have the app available for download. Users can register using their Emirates ID and verify their identification using face recognition technology, or they can use their Emirates ID to visit a local kiosk.
The UAE’s national COVID-19 registry, Al Hosn, provides information on a user’s immunization status as well as prior COVID-19 test results. Access to some public facilities in the UAE, such as Abu Dhabi and Al Ain airports, requires a green status on Al Hosn.
A grey status on Al Hosn indicates that the person’s PCR test result is no longer valid (you must take a test every 14 days to retain a green status), while a red status indicates that the most recent test was positive and the user should contact the local health authority for assistance. Users who have a grey status may be unable to enter public areas that require a Green Pass.
The Apple App Store, Google Play Store, Huawei AppGallery, and Samsung Galaxy Store all have the app accessible for download.
