The European Commission proposed that EU countries should ease restrictions on free movement by calling for member states to introduce Digital Green Certificates prior to July 1 in the lead up to the summer tourism season.

European Commissioner for Justice, Didier Reynders, said that fully vaccinated persons should be exempt from further testing or quarantine measures after receiving their second vaccine dose.

EU countries may decide on their own measures to let in persons who have received only one of the two shots after a certain period of time, for example, two to three weeks after receiving the first shot.

Also, persons who have recovered from Covid-19 should be exempt from further testing or quarantine measures 180 days after receiving their positive result. Persons with a negative PCR test no older than 72 hours or a negative antigen test no older than 48 hours should also be exempt from quarantine measures.

The EC also proposed that no restrictions should apply to persons from a green zone when traveling to another EU country.

The Digital Green Certificates - or so-called COVID passports - are designed to prove a person has been vaccinated against COVID-19, received a negative test result or recovered from COVID-19. It will be available, free of charge, in digital or paper format. It will include a QR code to ensure security and authenticity of the certificate.
