• Certificate How to download the Covid passport


Council of the European Union

(EU), the body that brings together the governments of the Member States, has approved

extending for another year

, until June 2023, the regulation that establishes the

covid digital certificate

, the health pass created to allow the mobility of vaccinated people.

As reported by the Council, the extension of this regulation will allow

the EU States

that so wish to continue requiring the

covid passport

from travelers who want to travel through their territory, whether they are European citizens or third-country citizens.

However, the Twenty-seven also opened the door to repeal the

covid certificate

regulations ahead of time and not wait until June 30 of next year, as long as the

health situation

allows it.

In this sense, the national governments set the

European Commission

the obligation that before the end of this year 2022 present a detailed report in which it evaluates the need to maintain or

repeal the covid passport


On the other hand, the regulation contemplates

new measures

such as the possibility of issuing a

recovery certificate, as

a person has passed


, after an antigen test.

In addition, the extended text expands the range of authorized

antigen tests

to obtain a recovery certificate and includes the possibility that people who participate in

clinical trials

of the covid-19 vaccine can compute them as doses, and issue them, thus, the


vaccination passports .

The new regulation also clarifies that the

covid certificates

must include all the doses injected, regardless of whether they have been placed in

different EU states


The modified text will enter into force this Tuesday and, as it has the

character of a European regulation

, it is a rule of direct and instant application, which does not need to wait for

each member country

to transpose it into its legislation to be effective.
