UK govt will ‘help facilitate’ vaccine passports: minister

LONDON: The UK government will work with other countries to “help facilitate” coronavirus immunity passports if they are required by destinations abroad, a minister has said.

Foreign Office minister James Cleverly said it would be up to the individual countries where holidaymakers are arriving to decide on their own border arrangements.

But he said it was “not an uncommon practice” for countries to require documents on inoculations and that the government would work with international partners on this.

It follows reports in the Times that British officials have started work on an official certification programme after Greece said it would waive quarantine rules for arrivals who can prove they have been vaccinated against Covid-19.

Greece off the hook, unlike most other EU states

The European Commission launched infringement procedures last week against 24 member-states for failing to enact new EU telecom rules.

The deadline for transposing the Code into national legislation was December 21.

So far only Greece, Hungary and Finland have notified the Commission that they adopted all necessary measures for transposing the directive, thus declaring the process complete.
