European Commission adopts equivalence decisions for more countries with EU Digital Covid-19 Certificate

Over the first half of August, the European Commission adopted five equivalence decisions for Covid-19 certificates that were in force in North Macedonia, Turkey, Ukraine, the Vatican and San Marino.

On 15 September 2021, it was the turn for Albania, Andorra, Faroe Islands, Israel, Monaco, Morocco and Panama to receive the same equivalence decisions.

These third countries will, therefore, now be connected to the European Certificate System and the certificates they issue will be recognised in the same way as the EU’s digital Covid certificate.

HOTREC welcomes this decision, as travel between the EU and these non-member States will be facilitated.

Other 40 countries might be connected to the system soon, including Morocco, Israel, and Canada.
