COVID-19 vaccine passports will play a part in global travel
As COVID-19 lockdowns lift in the United States and summer begins, travel is now soaring again. But vaccinations, the easing of restrictions and the declining number of COVID cases also bring a new question: Will you have to prove your COVID-19 vaccination status (or maybe just a negative COVID-19 test) to travel internationally? Some countries, including those in the European Union and nations with economies dependent on tourism, are pushing ahead either with real vaccine passport plans or allowing vaccinated visitors to skip quarantine requirements for entry. The private sector, most notably cruise lines and airlines, also wants to climb aboard. But the idea is not without controversy.
