The EU Digital COVID Certificate (EUDCC), is a document that allows people to travel to/from all 27 member states of the European Union.
A Digital Green Certificate is a digital (and if requested also a paper) proof that a person has either

- recovered from COVID-19
The pass is issued by hospitals, test centres, health authorities etc. It consists of information about the individual and their vaccination/test/COVID recovery. The digital version consists of this information and a QR code stored on the individual's mobile phone.
The certificates should be rolled out for issuance and verification by summer 2021.
