Digital health passports roll out for air travelers tracking COVID status, vaccination proof; CommonPass has been dubbed the ‘world’s first COVID passport’
Thu Oct 8, 2020 – 4:29 pm EST
For global travel and trade to return to pre-pandemic levels, travelers will need a secure and verifiable way to document their health status as they travel and cross borders. Countries will need to be able to trust that a traveller’s record of a COVID PCR test or vaccination administered in another country is valid. Countries will also need the flexibility to update their health screening entry requirements as the pandemic evolves and science progresses.
Airlines, airports and other travel industry stakeholders will need the same.
The Commons Project together with The World Economic Forum is working to initiate the CommonPass framework to address those challenges.
“The Commons Project was established with support from the Rockefeller Foundation.”
