Saudi Arabia and Bahrain have launched a health e-passport for travel between the two countries.

It will help verify and match traveler information across the King Fahd Causeway for citizens and residents of Saudi Arabia and Bahrain for COVID-19 health requirements.

It also links the passport with border systems, verifying the traveler's health eligibility when issuing the boarding pass, and integrating with IATA transport systems to display travel requirements.

The aim of the SDAIA is to improve the health e-passport to the point that it can be acknowledged as an official document worldwide.

In November, Saudi Arabia and Bahrain signed an agreement to activate the health passport and achieve technical integration between the Tawakkalna and the Bahraini BeAware Bahrain app. 

It is expected that the electronic link between the two countries will expedite the completion of travel procedures.
