In the future, a valid EU Corona certificate will be more important for travel in the EU than the level of infection in the country of departure. The EU states agreed on Tuesday that from February 1 it should no longer be decisive where a trip starts – but whether a valid vaccination, test or convalescent certificate is available. This was announced by the EU countries on Tuesday. In doing so, they are largely following a proposal presented by the EU Commission two months ago.

According to the agreement, in addition to vaccines approved in the EU, agents accepted by the WHO or national authorities should also suffice. A PCR test should be done at the earliest 72, a rapid test 24 hours before travel. A convalescent certificate is to be valid for 180 days. Those without a certificate should test upon arrival. There are exceptions for children. There should be no additional restrictions. A spokesman for the EU Commission stressed, “The least we can all expect is that the member states also implement this recommendation.”

Since the Omicron variant has now spread throughout Europe, it is also to be examined whether the travel restrictions introduced in view of the variant in some member states should be lifted.
