Now that COVID-19 vaccines are steadily getting distributed in Singapore and many parts of the world, and with health testing becoming a regular feature of post-pandemic travel, the attention is turning to how travelers can prove they are free from — or are protected against — the deadly virus.

Moreover, the recent spate of COVID-19 cases in Singapore are mostly imported cases rather than locally-transmitted infections.

One emerging trend is ‘digital health passports’, which document the health status of travelers, keeping record of both vaccination and COVID-19 test results.

In China, many firms have rolled out their versions of vaccine passports, with popular ride-sharing, chat, and payment apps already displaying information about vaccination status.

This is also the case in Singapore. Many startups have joined the race to develop such ‘passports’, which mostly takes the form of a mobile app.
