COVID passport may become mandatory for air travel: what kind of document it is

Be prepared to have two passports with you when flying in the COVID-19 era: one is your homeland's passport, and the other is a document confirming vaccination against coronavirus. New York Post.

A group of airlines is working on a universal digital document, which will show the results of testing passengers for viruses and the fact of vaccination.

The International Air Transport Association said the "digital health passport" is in its final stages of development. It is essential for seamless verification of information among airlines, test labs, governments and travelers.

"Testing is the first key to making international travel free of quarantine measures," the association's director general, Alexandre de Junac, said in a statement.

“The second key is the global information infrastructure needed to securely manage, share and validate test data matching traveler IDs to meet border control requirements,” he said.

According to the report, the COVID passport will guide travelers to verified testing centers and laboratories at departure points that will comply with regulations and standards, hoping to avoid restrictions on arrival.

So far, one airline has publicly said it is considering making the coronavirus vaccine mandatory for travel: Australia's Qantas.

“We plan to change our terms and conditions to inform foreign travelers that we will ask people to get vaccinated before they can board the plane,” said Qantas CEO Alan Joyce.
