Covid passports. The European Commission wants to shorten their validity

Currently in line with the guidelines adopted by the Council of the EU Anyone who is fully vaccinated with preparations approved by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) should be able to travel to the EU for any purpose. These vaccines are Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, produced in the EU AstraZeneca and Janssen (a company owned by Johnson & Johnson). Member States may extend this scope to vaccines that have been included in the list of possible emergency uses by the World Health Organization (WHO).

Non-essential travel, regardless of individual vaccination status, is currently allowed for people from over 20 countries with a good epidemic. This list is established by the EU Council on the basis of established epidemiological criteria and currently includes, inter alia, Argentina, Australia, Bahrain, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Indonesia, South Korea, and the United Arab Emirates.

Individual countries can largely shape their rules for travelers from outside the EU, including by establishing lists of green, yellow and red countries with differing entry rules or requiring quarantine upon arrival. For example Hungary honors all vaccines approved in its territory, not only those recognized by the EMA (apart from the above-mentioned, these are preparations of Chinese companies CanSino and Sinopharm, Covishield produced in India by AstraZeneca and Russian Sputnik V). Hungarian authorities also authorize entry to recoverers who underwent COVID-19 within six months prior to travel, and on the basis of the PCR test to citizens of OECD countries (including Japan, Israel, New Zealand), NATO members, Russia, China, United Arab Emirates Arab, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan.
