Business Travel News Europe 3.7.2023:
BT4Europe has urged the European Commission to “urgently press ahead” with its plans to digitalise travel documents within the EU.
The group, which represents 13 business travel associations across Europe, was responding to a European Commission consultation on “digitalising travel documents to make travelling easier”.
Patrick Diemer, chair of BT4Europe, said: “Business travellers, in particular, have already embraced the convenience of digital travel documents in the form of electronic boarding passes for air and rail travel. The digitalisation of officially required paper documents, including passports, identity cards, visas, vaccination certificates and others, would be a significant step forward, simplifying cross-border travel procedures.”
