EU 'Covid passports' now available online in all Spain's regions: How to get yours
18 July 2021 @ 11:11

VACCINE certificates or 'Covid passports' recognised throughout the European Union for travel can now be obtained from each and every regional health authority website, or in some cases, with a mobile phone App.

They are not typically handed out as a hard copy upon receipt of the final vaccine dose, and are generally not needed except when travelling, although in theory, a digital copy requested can be kept 'on file' just in case.

For those who want to keep a paper copy, the important part is the QR code, which is scanned by airport or ferry port staff or at national borders to check its authenticity, and if the situation changes and certain circumstances nationally require sight of it – such as entering another region in the event that contagion rates spike in parts of the country and authorities of another want to see proof of vaccine, recovery from Covid or a negative PCR result, or a major public event, like a sports tournament, requires one of the three – it is expected that QR-code readers will be in place should this ever arise.
