Japan is planning to issue travellers with coronavirus inoculation certificates this (northern) summer.
That is … now.
- to vaccinated residents travelling abroad
- European Union will adopt them in July
- interagency team led by Chief Cabinet Secretary Katsunobu Kato is discussing an official program for businesspeople and others
- a paper certificate this summer, followed by a digital version — possibly used through a smartphone app — by the end of the year
As an aside … a paper certificate … yes, this Japan after all.
