Holders of the European Covid-19 certificate - the so-called "Green Passport" - should be completely quarantined in Europe, Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz called for in a statement to the European Union (EU).

There should also be more uniform rules on when someone is considered vaccinated, Sebastian Kurtz said, adding that "it would be nice if everyone was a little more generous", but he is not sure if this will be achieved at the EU Summit.

At the moment, EU member states can issue additional national regulations for virus variants, and for him, the "Green Passport" is "basically the right step towards more freedom of travel and regularity," the Austrian chancellor said.

Sebastian Kurtz was one of the first EU leaders, who from the beginning was in favor of the proposal of the Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis for the introduction of a European vaccination certificate.

Typically, before the February 25 European Council, which was held via video conference, the federal chancellor had stressed that "a green passport is needed for anyone who has been vaccinated or who has just passed the coronavirus and therefore has immunity or has taken a new test ", Pointing out that if there is no European solution, the project will be" approached at national level ".

Sebastian Kurtz had made his proposal public before the two-day EU summit, at which he had raised the issue and backed it because, in his view, "we need the freedom to travel within the European Union again and again." .

"Israel already has a similar system, and therefore 'I expect to implement it in Europe as well,'" he said, noting that this is technically easy and should be a digital solution where anyone can identify his cell phone.

Austrian Chancellor of the Exchequer Caroline Edstadler, from the Sebastian Kurz People's Party, had already voted in favor of a European vaccination certificate on 18 January.

"I consider it important that a vaccination certificate is coordinated and has a uniform appearance," because "mobility is a key prerequisite for the economy, travel and tourism," Caroline Edstadler said in a statement before the conference. European Union counterparts.
