Entra em uso o passaporte Covid digital na UE

By Duncan Mil

June 2, 2021 - Foi lançado em sete países da UE um certificado Covid digital para atestar o estado de saúde – identificando se a pessoa foi vacinada, teve teste negativo recente ou recuperou da doença causada pelo coronavírus. Os viajantes podem atravessar a fronteira se cumprirem pelo menos um dos critérios.

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.
