Egypt’s health ministry released on Wednesday a health passport application as an electronic alternative for the COVID-19 vaccination QR code certificate for use by travellers as well as locally.

The passport, which can be used at any airport around the world, proves whether a person is vaccinated, what kind of vaccine they have received, the number of doses administered, and, if they have received only one dose, the date of their upcoming dose.
