The Spanish Cabinet has upheld the initiative to introduce the vaccination passports in the EU. Lavanguardia reported that on Tuesday. 

The government believes that introduction of such IDs will make free movement within the EU easier, and thus revive the economy and tourism.

The idea comes from Greece, as the Greek government offered to introduce the special immune passports before the tourist season begins; thus, the vaccinated individuals can travel the world freely.

At the same time, some EU member countries stand against this initiative. France, for example, believes it is too soon to speak about introduction of the unified vaccination passport in the EU. The country's government claims that such passports are not in line with the vaccination strategy in France: thу first ones who received the vaccine in this country are patients of the care homes, and these people do not travel around Europe. 

Romania also rejected the idea.
