The French government said on Monday that it would begin introducing digital Covid passports, making it one of the first European countries to do so.

Travellers in France will be able to digitally download their Covid-19 test results on an app starting this week.

The app will contain a QR code that will have the test date and results, and, beginning April 29, proof and type of vaccination administered, as well as the date of the vaccination. Travelers may also print their results if they wish.

The digital passport will at first be good only on domestic flights to the French island of Corsica in the Mediterranean Sea. The government will then expand it to be good on flights to France’s overseas territories, with the eventual idea being for the passport to be usable for travel to other countries.
