Unified GCC Covid-19 passport in the works

A unified Covid-19 health passport will be discussed at a GCC health officials meeting next week, according to a top Omani official.

Dr. Saif Salim Al Abri, Director-General of Disease Control and Surveillance noted that GCC countries will discuss a unified Gulf health passport, in addition to travel and movement between GCC countries.

A certificate – green ‘COVID-19 Vaccinated’ shield – will be issued to vaccinated people with the user’s name, date of birth, nationality and which vaccine they received.

This will help authorities to verify the validity of users by scanning a QR code which is linked to a national vaccine register.

Bahrain is one of the first countries in the world to launch a digital Covid-19 vaccine passport.
