Sweden on Thursday announced that they are planning to launch a digital coronavirus vaccine passport by this summer.

At present, travelers across the world have to show the COVID-19 related certificate while going to many countries. In the mean time, the vaccination program started across the world. As a result, there is a demand to keep the vaccine passport or certificate among the necessary documents related to immigration travel.

Governments and developers around the world are exploring how such certificates could help to reopen economies by identifying those protected against COVID-19.

“When Sweden and countries around us start to open up our societies again, vaccination certificates are likely to be required for travel and possibly for taking part in other activities,” Swedish digitalization minister Anders Ygeman told a news conference.

Meanwhile, Denmark said on Wednesday that it would launch the first version of a coronavirus vaccination passport by the end of February.
