I suppose each country within and outside Europe will need to design an opening up system of some sort and no doubt there will be variations between systems with some common binding rules to permit travel once again. You can’t shut a country down for too long. So, this is good news and hopefully we will see more of it in the coming months. If we all take extra care and follow the rules it just might work. God willing, as they say. There’s been too much suffering and too many losses already.
What seems to be becoming clearer, is there will not likely be a coordinated computerized international Health pass when EU countries open up. France will accept paper certificates. It will be interesting to see how this impacts pass control.
What they are telling us in Canada is that Canada and the EU countries are working on a digitalized certificate similar to the certificates that are already issued for going into certain countries with yellow fever and such. We are used to getting our travel shots for different countries and they will just work on that same premise. Trudeau is talking about summer travel and having them ready for then.
Personally, I fail to see the point in debating and discussing this. These are all suppositions and not based on any real facts. The reality is Covid is present and presents a danger to everyone whether they are vaccinated or not. The new mutations are happening in every country on earth.
I have no plans or desire to travel until 2022!
I can see that this thread is going to deteriorate into a debate with no real point. I am closing the thread. If anyone wants it reopened because they think they have useful factualpractical information, then please PM one of the moderators.
