Asean travel wallet launched
The Asean Business Advisory Council has launched a digital gateway and travel wallet to facilitate safer, seamless and standardised approach to regional travel. This will provide travellers with a facility to carry digital documents such as vaccination certificates and other health information required for entry into the region. Chair of the Asean Business and Investment Summit 2021 Haslina Taib stated that the data collection will be minimised, with only relevant data such as citizen’s identification, vaccination type, date, and validity, and/or Covid recovery date, being shared to the Asean Digital Gateway.
The project implements Asean Declaration on the Asean Travel Corridor Framework adopted in the last Asean Summit 2020.
