European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, via her official Twitter account, confirmed (01-Mar-2021) the European Commission will present a legislative proposal for a Digital Green Pass during Mar-2021. The aim is to gradually enable European citizens to move safely in the EU or abroad for work or tourism. The pass will be aimed at providing:
- Proof that a person has been vaccinated;
- Results of tests for those who could not get a vaccine yet;
- Info on COVID-19 recovery.
Ms von der Leyen stated the pass "will respect data protection, security & privacy".
