If the bearer of the passport has been vaccinated, it may grant them special travel privileges such as the waiving of mandatory quarantine. It could even allow them to visit certain areas such as restaurants, music festivals, sports events and conferences.
The leftist government of Denmark is hoping the passport can be the first step in a return to normalcy. Acting Finance Minister Morten Boedskov said on Wednesday, Feb. 3, that the passport will be ready “in three, four months” and that Danish citizens will be able to use it for business-related flights.
“It is absolutely crucial for us to be able to restart Danish society so that companies can get back on track,” said Boedskov. “Many Danish companies are global companies with the whole world as a market.”
According to Boedskov, the government will launch a health website by the end of February that will show confirmation whether each Danish citizen has been vaccinated.
