Is a “vaccine passport” coming soon?


In the near future, travel may require digital documentation showing that passengers have been vaccinated or tested for the coronavirus.

One of President Biden’s executive orders aimed at curbing the pandemic asks government agencies to “assess the feasibility” of linking coronavirus vaccine certificates with other vaccination documents, and producing digital versions of them.

Denmark’s government said on Wednesday that in the next three to four months, it will roll out a digital passport that will allow citizens to show they have been vaccinated.

And in a few weeks, Etihad Airways and Emirates will start using a digital travel pass to help passengers manage their travel plans and provide airlines and governments documentation that they have been vaccinated or tested for Covid-19.
