Italy to launch EU COVID-19 passport from 15 June
Italy is ready to launch travel health certificates within a few days, the authorities have announced on Wednesday after the European Parliament gave the final approval to the EU COVID-19 certificates, through which the block intends to restore travelling within the European Union Member States, SchengenVisaInfo.com reports.
The EU COVID-19 vaccination passport will serve as evidence of the holder being fully vaccinated with the European Medicine Agency approved vaccines (Moderna, AstraZeneca, Pfizer, and Janssen), has recovered from the disease or has resulted negative in the last 48 hours.
Starting from June 15, all document holders will be permitted to visit Italy, attend weddings, concerts, or go to nightclubs.
The certificate can be used for intra-EU travel from July 1 and should release travellers from entry quarantine or further testing upon arrival. The green pass can be presented either in digital format, on a smartphone, for example, or printed out on paper since it features a unique QR code for verification, which border officials can use to verify the holder’s identification, according to SchengenVisaInfo.com.
Italy has recently been reporting its lowest weekly rates of coronavirus infections since October 2020, and the Rt or reproduction number, which shows the rate of transmission, is at its lowest since this time last year. Nearly all of Italy’s 20 regions are classified as ‘low risk’ in the latest health data monitoring report from the Italian health ministry on Friday June 11th. Only Sardinia was deemed to be ‘moderate’ risk – however the island region still remains in the low-restriction ‘white zone’, which means most coronavirus restrictions have been dropped, The Local wrote.
