The proper agreements were reached during the meeting of Ukraine’s Vice PM Olha Stefanyshyna and Vice President of the European Commission Věra Jourová as PM of Ukraine Denys Shmygal reported on Facebook.
The compatibility of Ukrainian and European Covid passports will enable Ukrainians to travel to Europe freely. The digital passport will confirm that a person is vaccinated, got through it and was tested.
Earlier, it was reported that the implementation of vaccination passports in Ukraine would begin after most citizens can have access to vaccines.
