Covid-19 digital passport gets go ahead

The European Parliament has approved the launch of a Covid-19 digital passport scheme, in a move it hopes will free movement and leisure travel a step closer in time for the northern hemisphere summer.

The EU Covid-19 certificate will show proof of a vaccination, a recent negative test result or that the holder has recovered from the virus, Travel Mole reported.

MEPs also called for "universal, accessible, timely and free of charge testing".

The vaccine passport scheme will be in use for a period of 12 months and is only for travel purposes.

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen called it a "key step forward towards free and safe travel this summer."

The EU is working with the World Health Organization to ensure the vaccine certificate can be used beyond Europe.

There have, however, been "no contacts" with British officials to make it available to UK citizens yet. So the Brits can stay at home.
