mutual recognition of certificates
Creation of a single certificate for both the markets will lead to the reactivation of the long-awaited tourism flows
The United Kingdom and the European Union are very close to sealing an agreement on the mutual recognition of their respective digital health certificates, which will boost travel between the two markets. As Travelmole reveals, negotiations are well advanced (Europe-UK: total lack of coordination with Covid Passport).
“Talks are going on at the technical level which is progressing well and going in the right direction. This is particularly due to the fact that the architecture of the technical system of the European Union and the United Kingdom is aligned”, explains a spokesperson for the European Union.
For its part, the only detail they state on behalf of Boris Johnson’s government is that the objective pursued by both sides is to “produce certification in a way that works for all.”
Despite fears of the spread of the delta variant in the United Kingdom, which has prompted many EU countries to impose quarantines or PCR tests on their tourists, the Anglo-Saxon country has one of the highest vaccination rates on the planet. 62% of its citizens of legal age have been fully vaccinated and about 85% have received at least the first dose.
