Guidelines for Member States on EU Digital COVID Certificates as air traffic increases

The European Commission has issued guidelines for Member States on how to check EU Digital COVID Certificates – the newly rolled out tool to show proof of vaccination or recovery from COVID-19 – before travel.

It considers this useful because how and how often Certificates are checked depends on the holder’s departure, transit and arrival points. It therefore proposes a coordinated approach to ‘help avoid congestion at airports and unnecessary stress for passengers and staff’, ahead of an expectation that air traffic is expected to reach more than 60% of 2019 levels.

Specifically, it suggests that an overlap in checks by more than one actor (airline operators, public authorities, and so on) can be avoided by a ‘one-stop’ verification process prior to, and as early as possible before, departure.
