In partnership with the UAE’s Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship (FAIC), Pure Health, the largest laboratory operator in the GCC and key partner of the UAE authorities in the nationwide fight against COVID-19 pandemic has launched an online system where passengers traveling to the UAE can register to get tested for COVID-19 in their home countries through an approved network of facilities.
This is the first of its kind project globally where the UAE has become a pioneer in promoting safe travel through this innovative solution. This is an international laboratory partnership project, in which the service is enabled in partnership with over 500 accredited laboratories in 40 countries at its first stage. All the procedures are planned in accordance with measures to prevent the spread of the virus.
The service can be booked easily through the web portal https://screening.purehealth.ae, where Pure Health has provided the list of the approved labs in each country. The incoming passengers to the UAE from any of the empaneled countries can register for the screening simply by entering their details, selecting their country, city, and preferred laboratory on the portal, their results are then shared with the UAE government through the shared portal. After that, they will receive feedback from the government regarding their application.
The second phase of the project will increase the coverage to 60 countries and 1000 laboratories.
