Emirates Airlines has completed providing the “IATA Travel Pass” application to its customers who travel to all its destinations, becoming the first airline in the world to provide this digital health certificate on all continents. The UAE gradually expanded the pilot "IATA Passport" solution to include 12 tracks last June, and recently signed a contract with IATA to adopt the solution across its global network.

The IATA Passport application is now available for Emirates customers traveling from 50 cities and is expected to cover more than 120 destinations by next October.

The main features of the IATA passport include a reference to the latest travel requirements, as it provides passengers with accurate information about travel requirements, examinations and vaccinations for their trips, and a record of examination centers, as it presents passengers with approved “Covid-19” examination centers at the departure sites that meet the requirements of their destinations, as well as digital documentation that allows passengers to manage documents Travel them digitally, from receiving test results and vaccination certificates directly from accredited laboratories and testing centers to easily and securely sharing these documents with authorities and airlines to facilitate travel.

Travelers can now access more than 1,500 laboratories for "Covid-19" tests through the "IATA Passport" application, and this number is constantly increasing.

EU and UK citizens can register a vaccine certificate on the app and work is underway to link a wide range of approved digital travel documents to link or upload to the app. Travelers can download the app, register themselves and create their digital identities using their passports.
