The Council of the European Union has lifted some travel restrictions for Covid certificate owners. The relevant statement was published on the website of the Council of the European Union.
"Those who own vaccination certificates will not be tested or quarantined/self-isolated if they have been fully vaccinated with a vaccine approved by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) and if at least 14 days have passed since vaccination," reads the statement.
In addition, testing and self-isolation will not be mandatory for individuals recovering from coronavirus. It is required for 180 days to have been passed since the coronavirus confirmation.
At the same time, individual EU member states have already started issuing digital COVID certificates. These include Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Germany, Greece, Croatia, and Poland.
Certificates are issued to persons who have been vaccinated with a vaccine registered in the EU. There are four vaccines - BioNTech/Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca, and Johnson & Johnson. Each EU country can issue a certificate at its discretion to those vaccinated with a vaccine approved by the World Health Organization (WHO).
