September 26 - Abu Dhabi Ports Company (ADPC) has launched a new mobile application - ADPC Port Pass - to help accelerate approved access to its ports.

ADPC Port Pass is available in Arabic and English, and allows users to quickly submit an application for an electronic port pass (e-pass) and to track its status at any time of the day.

Once the application has been approved, the user will receive an instant notification to proceed and collect the pass from the relevant port office.

Prior to the application process, the user is required to register and open a personal ADPC account.

The app is available to download via the Apple Store and Google Play, but can currently only be used on iOS mobile devices. Once the second development phase is completed, the app will also be available for use on Android mobile phones.
