We have passed Holy Week, we are already in May and June is approaching. Summer is coming, and with it the holidays. And although the measures have been relaxed, you may be traveling and they will ask for your Covid passport to let you access a specific site.
The Covid Passport
The Covid passport or certificate is a document that allows you to travel between EU countries by simply accrediting what “a person has been vaccinated against COVID-19, has recovered from the disease or has a negative test in the last 24/72 hours”, as established by the different countries. If you do not have the EU digital COVID certificate, you can travel, but the admission process is slower and you may be asked for additional measures, such as tests or quarantines.
This certificate is ”simple, safe, reliable and free”, and you can take it from him in electronic or paper format. Although the EU digital COVID-19 certificate is valid throughout the EU, countries remain responsible for their own entry rules and health measures during the pandemic. This means that the entry requirements depend on your destination.
The national authorities are responsible for issuing the certificate. In Spain, it is generally issued by the Autonomous Communities. Additionally, the Ministry has enabled a fully electronic procedure for the request and issuance of these certificates.
How to get and download the Covid passport

If you want to do it through the autonomous community in which you live, then you have the website from which to do it and the official mobile app -some CCAA do not issue the certificate through their application, but you must do the process through the page Web.
