Spain To Test Digital Pass With The Travellers While Keeping All The Measures In Place

The measure will use a QR code to inform the authorities about the travellers including, whether they’ve received an approved COVID-19 vaccine, fully recovered from the virus or tested negative within an acceptable timeframe.
