Is the Tawakkalna Health Passport necessary to enter public places?
As of August first, 1, Saudi Arabia has placed restrictions on unvaccinated people. Including citizens’ and residents’ entry into public places would be much more difficult now. As a result, this excludes trips to malls, shopping centers, and markets. People need a valid vaccination status to be catered to at service-providing platforms. For instance, restaurants, cafes, dining houses, and beauty salons.
However, the Saudi government has been kind enough to allow relief for people of compromised health status. These are people who can NOT be vaccinated safely. Moreover, users who register correctly and have an exempted status on their health passports will be allowed access to public venues. They will enjoy the same benefits as completely vaccinated people.
Can the Tawakkalna App be used internationally?
The Tawakkalna Application is a highly thorough piece of work. It is accessible in over 70 countries worldwide. This includes a large part of the Middle East, Africa, and a few countries in Asia. Additionally, it covers most European districts, the United States of America, and Canada.
