What is IATA Travel Pass?
IATA Travel Pass is a mobile app that helps passengers to store and manage their verified certifications for COVID-19 tests and in future COVID-19 vaccinations.
The app checks that a passenger meets the entry requirements for their destination and notifies the passenger to let them know that they are ready to travel.
Passengers can download the IATA Travel Pass onto a mobile device from the app store. They then create a secure account and the app presents them with the entry requirements for their destination.
Passengers then book a Covid-19 test with an approved provider who will automatically upload the results into the app by.
