What Is The IATA Travel Pass? and What You Need to Know about Digital Certificate Apps

What Is The IATA Travel Pass?

“IATA Travel Pass” is a “digital certificate app” being developed by the International Air Transport Association (IATA), an industry group consisting of airlines around the world.

The digital health certification process allows you to share your personal health information with “medical institutions,” “airlines,” and “quarantine authorities.”

Due to the current status of Covid-19 infection, immigration requirements vary from country to country, but travelers are often denied entry due to difficulty in obtaining the correct information and sudden changes in required documents.

With the “Digital Certificate App”, you can easily check and manage the latest travel requirements, PCR inspection methods, and whether or not you can travel, so it can be said that the hurdles for travel are greatly reduced.

Currently, 32 airlines including ANA, JAL, Singapore Airlines, Korean Air, Qantas, British Airways and Emirates have announced their participation in the demonstration experiment.

There are other apps such as “Common Pass” and “VeriFLY” in “Digital Certificate Apps”.

What can the IATA Travel Pass provide?


  • Store and manage verified certifications for COVID-19 tests
  • Store and manage COVID-19 vaccine information
  • Check immigration requirements

By displaying the screen of the app at check-in at the airport, you can provide information smoothly and contactless.
In the future, this app may be used not only for Covid-19, but also for yellow fever vaccination certificates.
