While the COVID-19 pandemic has affected a lot of places not just in the UAE but also the world, Yas Island has seen a relatively lesser number of positive cases. Furthermore, it has also been awarded the significant WTTC “Safe Travels” stamp, which has thereby made it the very first destination in Abu Dhabi to receive this honour.
The “Safe Travels” stamp by WTTC, or the World Travel and Tourism Council, is a one-of-a-kind global safety and hygiene stamp, which has been launched recently, and has been awarded only to the businesses which have followed the global levels of safety as well as hygiene protocols. Yas Island, in addition to getting this stamp, has also acted quickly, and provided deep and valuable insight to the travellers and residents about the “New Normal” after the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Important Information about the Green Pass
This Green Pass will be checked while entering all the attractions, theme parks and major touring places of Yas Island. The said pass will be required for anyone above the age of 16 and anyone below that can enter the major tourist attractions by showing a valid government approved document having their age.
This Green Pass will be used for entry purposes only and will not authorize anyone to not follow the Covid related guidelines. Wearing masks, keeping a safe distance and cleaning of hands is still mandatory for everyone.
