Have’s & Have Not’s: COVID Passport Vaccination To Travel

The Inter­na­tion­al Air Trans­port Asso­ci­a­tion (IATA) said Mon­day it’s “in the final devel­op­ment phase” of a mobile “dig­i­tal pass­port” app that would tell air­lines if inter­na­tion­al trav­el­ers had been vac­ci­nat­ed against COVID-19. The app would help “get peo­ple trav­el­ing again safe­ly,” IATA’s Nick Careen said in a state­ment, by “giv­ing gov­ern­ments con­fi­dence that sys­tem­at­ic COVID-19 test­ing can work as a replace­ment for quar­an­tine requirements.”

Aus­trali­a’s Qan­tas announced Mon­day that it’s on board with requir­ing a “vac­ci­na­tion pass­port” for inter­na­tion­al trav­el­ers, start­ing next year. “We are look­ing at chang­ing our terms and con­di­tions to say for inter­na­tion­al trav­el­ers, that we will ask peo­ple to have the vac­ci­na­tion before they get on the air­craft,” Qan­tas CEO Alan Joyce told Aus­trali­a’s Net­work 9. Kore­an Air and Air New Zealand also backed the idea but said any changes would have to be coor­di­nat­ed with their respec­tive governments.
