Are you planning to travel to Disney World or anywhere else soon?
Recently, there have been a lot of updates concerning air travel in the U.S. The CDC now mandates that all passengers flying into the US from abroad show proof of a negative COVID-19 test, and President Biden instituted some major updates that impact air travel. And still, more change could be coming to the travel industry, including the development of a “Vaccine Passport.”
According to the NY Times, in the near future, travelers may be required to present documentation showing that they have been vaccinated or tested for the coronavirus. The documentation would be in the form of “digital passports” that could be presented before travel and airlines are taking a particular interest in the concept.
These vaccine passports could be essential to the return of the travel industry, enabling airlines to safely transport passengers. Proof of vaccine isn’t necessarily a new concept though. Some countries already require proof of vaccination against other contagious viruses like rubella and yellow fever.
And, Denmark is already working to bring the vaccine passport to their travel industry. Government officials have announced that in the next three to four months they will be rolling out the digital passport.
Technologists are working to develop an app for smartphones that would serve as the vaccine passport, though there are still many obstacles to overcome before this technology is rolled out to the public in the U.S. We’ll continue to keep an eye out for more updates that might affect your future trips to Disney and beyond.
