Croatian concertgoers could require Covid certificate

Written by  Jun 10, 2021

The European Parliament today voted on digital Covid certificates that will be in official use across the European Union from 1 July. Croatia has already introduced this certificate in the system, and in a week more than 100,000 people created their certificate.

In addition to crossing borders, the plan is for this certificate, which gives evidence of proof of illness, vaccination or a negative test, is that it will be used for other purposes, such as entering into concerts.

The digital Covid certificate would be scanned at the doors of the events.

“The headquarters is currently considering the adoption of these national rules for the use of digital Covid certification and I assume that by the end of the week we will have a national solution for this and then we will be able to discuss where and how to organize concerts. I hope that we will know something more about it on Friday,” said the director of the Croatian Public Health Institute, Krunoslav Capak.

Berislav Marszalek, owner of a platform for ticket sales, said that the goal was to integrate tickets and the checking of Covid certificates so that the whole process would be quick and easy. "We do not want to slow down the process further at the entrance," Marszalek said.

State Secretary at the Ministry of Culture and Media Krešimir Partl said it was difficult to say where and what the first concert would look like.
