Kosovo making preparations to issue COVID-19 digital passports

Kosovo recognizes COVID-19 digital certificates approved by the European Commission but is not part of the digital system for issuing such certificates, Radio Free Europe in Albanian reported.

The Ministry of Health said it is working closely with the European Commission to ensure the recognition of digital passports issued by Kosovo.

The inoculation process in Kosovo began in March and so far, 400,000 people have received both doses of either the AstraZeneca or the Pfizer vaccines, RFE recalls.

At present, the people vaccinated against coronavirus in Kosovo are issued with a vaccination card that also contains a QR code while authorities, said the Ministry of Health, has also designed a digital certificate and this is now undergoing necessary procedures so that it gets approval from the European Commission.
