The goal is to put it into practice before the northern summer and it will also show a recent test that proves not infected, or alternatively it will serve as a certificate of recovery from the disease.
According to the President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, vaccination will not be a prerequisite for travel because this passport will not be discriminatory, and he explained that its goal is to ensure that citizens continue to enjoy their right to freedom of movement, whether unvaccinated, without endangering public health.
Amidst the new restrictions and closures due to the increase in cases in Europe, the new procedure for a vaccination is planned to facilitate internal movement between the various countries of the bloc, and is expected to help overcome tourism.
The new application will be free of charge and cannot be tampered with, and the certificate can be presented at airports in digital or paper format.
It can be used in all EU member states, including Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland, and it will be evidence that a person has been vaccinated, received a negative test, or has already passed the disease.
