Europe’s rollout of its Digital Covid Certificate — created to allow free movement of travelers between its countries — is humming along. As of now, 12 E.U. countries are using the app and the rest of the bloc countries are on track to launch by July 1.
The free mobile app provides digital proof via a QR code that a traveler has been vaccinated against Covid-19, has recently tested negative for Covid-19 or has recovered from the illness.
The E.U. Digital Covid Certificate includes limited information such as the traveler’s name, date of birth and relevant information about the vaccine status. This data remains on the certificate and is not stored or retained by visited countries.
