Should I get an immunity certificate before traveling?


The use of “immunity certificates” for international travel in the context of COVID-19 is not currently
supported by scientific evidence and therefore not recommended by WHO.

More evidence is needed to understand the effectiveness of rapid SARS-CoV-2 antibody tests.
For more information, everybody should refer to WHO scientific brief “Immunity passports” in the context of COVID-19,
which will be updated as new evidence becomes available. 
Beyond the scientific considerations, there are ethical, legal and human rights aspects related to privacy of personal data,
medical confidentiality, potential risk of falsification or engagement in risky behaviour, stigma and discrimination.
