The European City Council sanctioned the coronavirus digital certificate, Covid-19 Passport, with which travelers can prove if they have been vaccinated, overcome the disease or have a negative PCR, promoting the mobility of Europeans for the summer season and the next period.
The initiative was approved with 546 votes in favor, 93 against and 51 abstentions, advancing in the process to facilitate its entry into force as of July 1st, although some countries such as Spain are already implementing it.
Benefits for travelers
The certificate is not equivalent to a passport, but it will facilitate entry to other countries, allowing you to benefit from exemptions from quarantines, tests at the time of entry or other measures, which many countries are already beginning to announce.
Some nations are adjusting their entry requirements to the regulations and in the coming weeks they will relax the restrictions they have been imposing on citizens of other member countries who can prove that they have been vaccinated, or have a negative PCR or have overcome the disease.
