MEPs start discussions on proposed rules for travel certificates and consider speeding up approval of vaccines adapted against Covid-19 variants.

Digital Green Certificates

The civil liberties committee holds a debate on Tuesday morning on the introduction of a Digital Green Certificate that would indicate whether a traveller within the EU has been vaccinated against Covid-19, has had a recent negative test result or has recovered from the virus. Parliament agreed in March to fast-track the legislative procedure so that the certificate can help establish the conditions for safe and easy travel over the summer.
