Bulgaria doesn't require a covid test certificate at the moment.

I’m supposed to be off to Spain at the end of September, we are hoping that the vintage bike rally we are going on will happen or that Spain closes its borders to people from the U.K.

Sorry .. only in german.

But maybe interesting for your travel plans. 2 articles from public television in Switzerland and Germany. Take a translator of your choice:


source: SRF - Schweizer Radio und Fernsehen
is the branch of the Swiss radio and television company SRG SSR in German-speaking Switzerland.

digital identify
https://www.srf.ch/kultur/gesellscha...e-ueberwachung

source: Südwestrundfunk - Anstalt des öffentlichen Rechts (public german tv)
How is that supposed to work? One example is the Known Traveler Digital Identity project, or KTDI for short (digital identity of the known traveler), which is intended to enable travel without papers.
https://www.swr.de/swr2/wissen/digit...11-03-100.html


Will this come with the introduction of the digital vaccination card?

From a brief read it seems to contain a lot more of your information than a passport which I would be uncomfortable automatically sharing with others. I appreciate people at border control are entitled to ask whatever they see fit before allowing you entry to their country but it would also allow other such as the police to access information they currently require a search warrant to see, my initial reaction is count me out until I understand more about how much of my information I can withhold or decline to share.
I do however think people will and should be required to show proof of covid vaccine when entering another country for the forseeable future, but this does not need to be in this form.

I don`t think that this will happen together with digital vaccine verification. There are too many barriers in law worldwide existing (especially in Germany where a new chancellor will be voted this year!) that will prevent a regulation in the near future like the think tank in link illustrate.

In terms of my planing I was interested about how a fraud resistant vaccine verification could look like and function. Since last year I am checking here:

https://www.adalovelaceinstitute.org...d-status-apps/

It shows an overview what kind of thinking and action is going on in different countries.

I think that once people realise that they require a vaccine certificate to travel to Spain or Greece for their 2 weeks of sun, then the demand for such certificates will be so great that any considerations of privacy will be dropped.

There is plenty of previous history supporting vaccine certificates, some countries still require a proof of Yellow Fever vaccination, Smallpox certificates were very coo only required before the disease was eradicated by Vaccination.

I don’t really see what the fuss Is about, many countries I wouldn’t wish to travel to without making sure that my Hepatitis/Polio/tetanus shots were up to date. I need a Passport to travel and a driving license to drive......what’s so difficult about a vaccine certificate
