Japanese Minister for Administrative and Regulatory Reform Taro Kono stated on Monday that the country's government may consider introducing vaccine passports for Japanese people traveling overseas, APA reports citing Teletrader.

"If such passports become used globally, Japan would have to think about doing the same," the minister stressed, adding the same model is not likely to be used for domestic travel.

Previously, media reported that the European Union could start issuing vaccine passports by summer after European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen noted it may "restore the confidence of travelers as we gradually come to grips with the pandemic."
