Shapps said the process of recognising vaccination status would focus on countries administering WHO-approved vaccines, and said the process was complex because each country has different certification systems.

“It’s easier from the EU because they’re creating their own digital passport, it’s more complicated from other countries – the U.S. for example don’t have a digitised system,” Shapps said in a separate interview with the BBC.
