Pay attention to the final paragraph!
This certificate will allow free movement in Europe during the pandemic
The European Parliament has given the green light to the ‘EU COVID-19 Certificate’ , a document that will allow free movement throughout Europe during the pandemic and will be limited to twelve months . Spain’s objective is to implement this document by June .
This covid passport will allow the return of the trips, a situation that during the pandemic has been highly complicated because a negative PCR was necessary hours before taking the plane.
Without a doubt, this document opens the door to the recovery of the tourism sector and the national economy .
This document may be issued in digital or paper format and will indicate that the person has been vaccinated against covid-19 , that a test with a negative result has recently been carried out or that the person has passed the disease.
However, Europe has made it clear that this certificate cannot be used as a travel document or be mandatory for free movement .
Holders of the ‘EU COVID-19 Certificate’ should not be subject to additional travel restrictions, such as quarantine, self-isolation or testing, as explained by the European Parliament, so MEPs also claim that, to avoid discrimination against not vaccinated, the tests must be universal, accessible and free .
