Manama, July 1 (BNA): The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has welcomed the announcement of the Kingdom of Bahrain and the European Union countries of their mutual recognition of digital certificates related to vaccination, examination and recovery from COVID-19, as well as their acceptance of all travelers coming from both sides as of July 1, 2022.

 

The Ministry confirmed that mutual recognition reflects international confidence in the health system in the Kingdom and the measures it has taken to address COVID-19, in accordance with the highest international standards, which are the result of the efforts of Team Bahrain, led by His Royal Highness Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, the Crown Prince and Prime Minister.

 

The Ministry explained that the European Commission's approval of the request came after confirming the readiness of the application "Be Aware Bahrain", and its compliance with the international technical standards approved in proving the validity and safety of official certificates.

 

The European Commissioner for Justice Affairs, Didier Reynders, welcomed the accession of the Kingdom of Bahrain and a number of countries to the European Union system that is linked to 75 countries, and the European Union mission to the Kingdom of Bahrain praised this step, which would facilitate travel procedures, as the European Union extended the use of digital COVID-19 certificates until the end of June next year.
