If your idea of paradise is lying on a sun-kissed beach on a balmy Balearic island, you may need a new kind of passport to get there. Yesterday the EU officially introduced its Digital Covid Certificate, a way for European citizens to prove they have been vaccinated against, negatively tested for or have recovered from Covid-19.
This passport is free and recognised by all 27 EU member states, as well as Switzerland, Iceland, Norway and Lichtenstein. In principle, if you have one, you should be exempted from testing or quarantine should you wish to cross an international border.
If you live in England, don’t panic, it’s hoped the NHS Covid pass, bundled with the NHS app, will also be accepted by most countries. If you live in the rest of the UK, you’ll have to get by for now with a retro paper certificate.
But what if your idea of paradise is more grandiose? A place where there is no war or pain, poverty or sadness, no hunger, not even death? (Yes, we’ll throw in a beach too, if that is your heart’s desire.) If such a place was possible, what kind of passport would you need to get there?
This passport is not an app or a piece of paper, but a person. “I am the way”, said Jesus. John 14:6 “All you have to do to get there is believe in me”. John 3:16
If you’d like to know more, just ask.
