Denmark to introduce digital COVID-19 passports

08/02/21

Denmark plans to grant a digital Coronavirus passport and “vaccine certificates” to aid citizens planning to travel from the country.

The certificates will be issued at Sundhed.dk - the unified Danish eHealth Portal.

Announcing the government’s plan on vaccination certificates, the Acting Minister of Finance Morten Bødskov pointed out that it is for us to restart Danish society for many Danish companies, that are global companies with the whole world as a market.

“The government is therefore quickly launching a solution that can be used in connection with travel, and will also investigate the possibility of making a digital corona pass that can be used in several contexts,” the Acting Minister Bødskov said.

Trade and Industry Acting Minister Dan Jørgensen also expressed his belief that the development of a Coronavirus passport for vaccinated business travellers, the situation may recuperate.
