Third-country nationals will be able to obtain the EU digital Covid-19 certificate for travel. This requires that the authorities of individual EU countries accept proof of vaccination, a negative test result or recovery from Covid infection. CNN reported this citing the EU Commission spokesperson.

It is also noted that the decision will depend on the specific EU member state.

"Right now if you're an American, not living in the EU, you could get the certificate if you ask the national authorities of a member state to give you that certificate based on some proof that you've been vaccinated, or had a recent Covid test," the spokesperson said.

The publication says that seven European countries - Bulgaria, Czechia, Denmark, Germany, Greece, Croatia and Poland - had started issuing EU digital Covid certificates for travel within the bloc. But the system will be fully enforced from July 1. The certificate free of charge, secure and accessible to all.
