(25 January 2022) – Today, EU ministers have reached an agreement on updating the rules “to facilitate safe and free movement in the EU during the COVID-19 pandemic”.
Among the key updates of the recommendation are:
• In principle no additional restrictions for holders of the EU Digital COVID Certificate.

Any measures restricting free movement must be non-discriminatory and proportionate.
