SESSION 5. Health at the Border
This session will highlight how states and organizations have developed tools for passengers to assert health proofs for international travel purposes. The ICAO VDS specification will be highlighted, with a view to explaining its benefits for quick and contactless verification based on existing infrastructure, as well as its advantages for identity binding. Other experiences from around the world will also be shared describing how states have supported the issuance of health proofs, for both domestic and international purposes. A focus of this session will be achieving global interoperability among health proofs to support international travel and aviation recovery.
