Government Facing Calls To Clarify Details On EU Travel Pass

Tens of thousands of recovered Covid patients may not qualify for the EU's new international travel pass due to confusion over eligibility rules.

The cert is set to launch in Ireland on July 19th - allowing people to travel if they’re fully vaccinated, sit a negative test or if they’ve fully recovered from the virus.
The Government previously said patients diagnosed in the last nine months would qualify, but it’s now emerged that only those diagnosed in the last six months will.
It means around 128,500 people who picked up the virus between late October and the end of January will no longer qualify when the pass is launched.
