The tests of the “covid passport” began a few days ago through a system called CommonPass, between passengers from the United States and the United Kingdom.
The CommonPass has been designed to achieve an international standard aimed at those who wish to travel and show that they do not have coronavirus to avoid quarantine in the destination country.
CommonPass was developed by the “Commons Project” a non-profit organization in Switzerland, and is endorsed by the World Economic Forum.
The application was launched on October 7 in order to verify the health data of each passenger according to the entry requirements of the destination countries, quickly and efficiently.
The system consists of travelers taking a COVID-19 test in a certified laboratory, uploading the results to their phone and completing any additional health screening questionnaires required by the destination country.
Upon completing all the steps, the application generates a code that can be scanned by the airline and border personnel to verify the health status of the passengers.
The first volunteers had planned to fly between London and New York with United Airlines on October 21. They initially underwent a covid-19 test 72 hours before traveling and recorded their results on CommonPass using their mobile devices.
Without a doubt, this application will be very useful once the borders around the world are completely opened, generating security and tranquility for those who wish to travel.
