Regulation (EU) 2022/1034 - formally signed by the co-legislators on 29 June 2022 - introducing amendments to Regulation (EU) 2021/953 concerning a framework for the issuance, verification and acceptance of interoperable COVID-19 vaccination, test and recovery certificates (EU Digital COVID Certificate) to facilitate free movement during the COVID-19 pandemic. This is a text with EEA relevance.

The Coreper adopted a position on behalf of the Council of the European Union on 11 March. The plenary of the European Parliament adopted a negotiating position on 5 May. An informal agreement between the co-legislators on a compromise text for this file was reached on 13 June.
In addition to the prolongation, this extension also includes:
The compromise text was formally endorsed by the Parliament on 23 June and by the Council on 28 June. The Act was signed by the co-legislators on 29 June 2022 and published in the Official Journal on 30 June 2022. Similar legislation was adopted concerning the situation of non-EU nationals residing in Member States or Schengen Associated States and visitors with the right to travel to other Member States.
