Unvaccinated people face additional restrictive measures on travel to EU countries
With the activation of the EU COVID-19 digital certificate, which confirms vaccination or recovery from infection with the new coronavirus, European countries have made it mandatory for travel within EU borders.
Currently, most European countries impose strict restrictions on travelers who have not been vaccinated / cured following COVID-19 infection. The aim is to limit the spread of new coronavirus strains and to protect the population. A person who has not acquired immunity through the vaccine or after testing is much more vulnerable to the disease. Thus, they must be tested or remain in isolation, depending on the country of departure and the country of destination.
Romania has imposed restrictive measures
Romania has even imposed restrictive measures on those traveling from the yellow and red areas, and the COVID-19 digital certificate is the only document recognized to confirm testing, vaccination or cure. Thus, those traveling to Romania from the yellow zone will be able to avoid quarantine if they present the negative result of a PCR test or proof of vaccination, in both cases only the COVID digital certificate is accepted. Those traveling from the red zone to Romania will be able to avoid quarantine only if they are vaccinated against the new coronavirus. Similar measures were imposed by the authorities in Lithuania, the Czech Republic.
Finland is taking tougher measures, banning non-vaccinated travelers from certain European and third countries. Denmark is also considering applying new restrictive measures against unvaccinated people. Those traveling to Denmark from the countries and regions included in the yellow list must be double-tested, while those traveling from countries and regions included in the orange list must remain isolated, except for testing requirements.
Italy, Germany, Spain, France and many other European countries have begun to impose the EU COVID-19 digital certificate, including domestically, in particular to facilitate access to enclosed spaces, crowded areas, concerts, shows and other cultural events.
