Denmark and the Baltic Republics

Denmark was among the first countries to introduce mandatory Covid certification last spring. Restaurants, museums, cinemas, theaters, and hairdressers are only accessible to those who view the Coronapas app, which certifies a vaccination or tampon. The app was created prior to the European certification, and its purpose – before traveling abroad – was to make internal commutes safe. Opposite is the example of the Estonian app, which was also born very early on but only for expatriate purposes: the Tallinn government has always said that it is against classifying citizens. By contrast, in Lithuania and Latvia, only vaccinated people can eat meals in restaurants, go to the gym, cinema and theater. Others sit outside, with strict distancing rules and restrictions on the number of dealers and participants.

Germany and Austria

In Germany, the CovPass Check app, like Immuni, records the vaccination status and the most recent swab taken. Restaurateurs and hoteliers can – but not mandatory, and rules vary from land to land and even from company to company – to require visitors to show it, and decide whether or not to grant entry. The rule is more mandatory in Austria, where hotels and restaurants are open, but a vaccination certificate or proof of recovery is required at the entrance, or a negative survey result. Registration is followed by name and surname. But whoever enters can be without a mask. Hotels offer guest checks every 48 hours. These rules also apply to nightclubs – which can operate at 75% capacity – and are in effect until July 23, after which they will be updated.

At this point, access to restaurants and hotels is only allowed for those who have been vaccinated or fully recovered from Covid, and have a Covid certificate. Only later will access to unvaccinated people with a recent negative smear will be allowed. Allowed exceptions: Teens with parents and employees who do not wish to be vaccinated.

In Portugal, from Saturday 10 July, there is an obligation to require all tourists and residents with a certificate of vaccination, in restaurants, for a seat. The restaurateurs, already tested by the pandemic and restricted working hours, protested: at the moment, only two million Portuguese people have a permit, that is, one in five.
