Some Northern European countries have already announced that they will start practices such as vaccine passports. Denmark and Sweden announced plans to distribute “digital vaccination certificates” to boost tourism during the summer months.
Danish officials stated that holders of this certificate can go to business trips, sporting events, cultural events, or even restaurants.
Iceland, which is not a member of the EU but is a part of the Schengen area, has begun to issue digital documents to those who have been vaccinated since the end of January. It has been announced that those who show such a document at the entrance to Iceland will be exempted from the restrictions at the border and will not have to have a COVID-19 test.
The Baltic country, Estonia, launched a pilot project and stated that those who show evidence of vaccination will not be quarantined. Estonia has also started working on a possible digital vaccine certificate implementation with the World Health Organization.
