“To make everyone’s life easier”: European Commission proposes to extend validity of Covid Digital Certificates

On the basis that the decision will “make everyone’s life easier” when it comes to mobility, the European Commission is today suggesting that Covid Digital Certificates should remain valid not for nine months, but until June 2023. Presenting the proposal today, the executive has asked that a decision is made quickly. According to reports 1.2 billion certificates have already been emitted. Member States have ‘agreed’ that these are a prerequisite for air travel.
