Cross-border recognition of vaccination e-certificates is one of many possibilities that Singapore and Estonia are looking into as the two nations strengthen bilateral ties and cooperate digitally to recover from the Covid-19 pandemic.
In an exclusive interview with The Straits Times, Estonia’s President Kersti Kaljulaid said: “Estonian vaccination certificates plug into European Union vaccination certificates. So if Singapore so wants to plug in into this system, it is great.”
The system, known as EU’s Digital Covid certificate, came into force on July 1 with all 27 EU nations on board. It aims to allow Europeans to travel easily between member states. Some non-EU countries including Iceland, Norway and Switzerland are also on board.
