Pasaporte digital Covid de la Unión Europea

By Duncan Mil

June 2, 2021 - Siete países de la UE lanzaron un certificado digital Covid para verificar con seguridad el estado de salud – identificando si la persona ha sido vacunada, ha dado negativo en una prueba reciente o se ha recuperado de coronavirus. Los viajeros pueden cruzar fronteras si cumplen con al menos uno de esos tres criterios.

The document, known as a digital green certificate, offers a preview of what could become a standard for post-pandemic global mobility.

National authorities are in charge of issuing the certificates -- test centres, hospitals, health authorities, or eHealth portals.

While the digital version uses a mobile device, EU citizens can also request a paper version. Both will have a QR code that contains essential information such as name, date of birth, date of issuance, vaccine/ test/recovery data, and a digital signature, key to making sure the certificate is authentic.

The personal data of the certificate holder isn’t recorded by border officials, as this is not necessary to verify the digital signature. All health data remains with the Member State that issued an EU Digital COVID Certificate.
