    Article: Europe Doesn’t Recognise Australian Vaccination Certificates

    We used the typical blue medical masks and a cheap cloth mask on Emirates and in Dubai. Emirates offer this same mask to us onboard, even in Italy where N95 is supposed to be used on public transport no one has questioned the standard masks.

    Hong Kong's ban on passengers transiting from high risk countries

    I have just booked alternate flights SYD-LYS to avoid HK. Have 04/04 tickets with Cathay SYD-CDG but can't rely on that after the latest transit extension.

    If you’re not traveling until August, I think you’re wasting your time educating yourself now as things will most likely change, possibly a number of times between now and then. Your Australian international pass gets you into the countries. You need the European pass for local use once you’re...

    I think they’re suggesting to carry a physical printout with you, not suggesting that it will scan. Some have suggested that this will mostly work as establishments want your business.

    Yes, Italy appears more difficult to get in country. I’m going to try the free cancellation again for our daughter when she has her new passport.

    Hi Geoff, The certificate only shows the date of the last vaccination, product and doses + date of the certificate. I downloaded the French app and saved the certificates in their as France is our first destination early April. Hopefully it will still be valid for a trip in September.
