In the month that a great number of destinations lifted their travel restrictions for international visitors, there is, at last, a glimmer of hope that 2021 can finally be the year we observe some normalcy. The tourism industry around the world is now attempting to heal from the many months of lockdown and in the process, it is also inspiring the tech valleys to create innovative and effective tools for safe and seamless travel like – the Digital Health CommonPass.
As the Covid-19 vaccination is being made available in numerous countries, there is a growing curiosity in how travelers can prove to the authorities that they have been vaccinated. This practical and technical issue has been at the forefront for some time now which recently resulted in a technology embedded with verifiable health status or what we know as a the Digital Health CommonPass.
What will a digital health commonpass or a vaccine passport look like?
The the Digital Health CommonPass is one such app-based product that is reportedly being used by some top-tier airlines to allow hassle-free travel for those who have tested negative for the Covid-19 virus. It is a simple way to store vaccination records which once verified can be used as a document at airports to avoid quarantine procedures.
Besides carrying the report/results, it is also equipped to send notifications to the user about health screening information and Covid-19 travel advisory for their destination country. This technology, when implemented on a global level would not only help countries protect their people but also encourage them to open their tourism in a strategic, data-driven way that would significantly reduce the risk of community spread.
Technology like the Digital Health CommonPass may be what we will know as an important document just like our passport, something without which we may not be able to cross borders, at least for the first six-months of 2021.
