Here’s Why You Should Consider a Digital Health Pass For Your Next Trip

After two years of lockdowns and social distancing, people are ready to leave their homes for a new adventure. The travel industry boomed in 2022, leading to crowded airports and hotels. 

With the influx of people, many countries have asked travelers to show proof of vaccination upon entry to reduce the spread of COVID-19. While some countries accept paper CDC cards, many require travelers to download a digital health pass with their updated vaccination status. For example,  United Arab Emirates requires travelers to show a digital vaccine card with a scannable QR code to enter the country. Countries are not the only ones requiring digital vaccinations; cruises and airlines also require health passes to help all passengers feel safe.
