With the new normal, the nature of travel is also changing. With the IATA Travel Pass travel wallet, you can create a digital version of your passport, digitally store the health documents required for your trips abroad, and easily verify your flight acceptance through the application according to the health requirements of the country you are going to.

Your data is always safe, private, secure, and under your control.

We would like to remind you that you should have a copy of the Covid 19 test result printed from the web portal of the laboratory, as the country authorities will also check the physical test result.
In the IATA Travel Pass application, all your data is encrypted and saved only on your phone. It is not stored in any central database and no one else can access your data.
