The “COVID passport” will facilitate travel in more than 30 European countries this summer

The European Institutions have confirmed the EU COVID travel pass will be a reality this summer. Originally called the Digital Green Certificate, the new EU Digital COVID Certificate (EUDCC) will greatly facilitate travel for those who are vaccinated, tested or recovered from COVID-19 from across all European Union Member States and countries in the Schengen Area. It comes into force on 1st July 2021, with a six-week phasing in period for country authorities to comply. 13 EU Member States are already using it on a voluntary basis.

The EUDCC is free of charge and all COVID-19 vaccines authorised by the European Medicines Agency, including Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson, are valid. In addition, the authorities of individual countries can also accept other COVID-19 vaccines at their discretion.

The new certificate is not a pre-condition for travelling in Europe. Travellers who are not vaccinated will still be able to travel through Europe, however, testing and quarantine rules in different countries may still apply.

Explore Europe’s hidden creative quarters

Thanks to the EUDCC, visitors can rediscover Europe’s creative cities once more. But this time step away from the sometimes busy historical centres to discover more alternative neighbourhoods. Explore the secret side streets of Paris’ Belleville district to find an unexpected street art scene, or venture out to Kallio, Helsinki’s bohemian quarter, for art nouveau architecture like the Kallio Church.
