Euronews poll: Many European support vaccine passports but are divided over travelling

A large proportion of respondents across the board support or strongly support the introduction of the so-called vaccine passports: 53% in Germany, 65% in Italy and 69% in Great Britain, with a smaller proportion in France (39%).

LYON, FRANCE – Euronews, Europe’s leading international news channel who recently launched Euronews Travel, has released results from an exclusive poll conducted by Redfield & Wilton Strategies for Euronews in Germany, France, Italy and Great Britain, looking at Europeans' attitudes towards travel and vaccine passports:
  • A large proportion of respondents across the board support or strongly support the introduction of the so-called vaccine passports: 53% in Germany, 65% in Italy and 69% in Great Britain, with a smaller proportion in France (39%)
    – Those who oppose or strongly oppose the measure are in the minority: 25% in Germany, 32% in France, 19% in Italy and 12% in Great Britain.
    – Around a fifth of respondents neither support nor oppose the initiative. 
  • 55% in Germany, 63% in Italy and 69% in Great Britain say they would be willing to carry this vaccine passport for "all circumstances".
    – The French are more divided: 31% would carry the certificate for all circumstances, 31% only for international travel and 38% would not carry the passport at all. 
  • Britons support or strongly support restricting travel abroad only to those who have been vaccinated against the virus (69%); a support which drops to 35% in Germany, 42% in France and 40% in Italy.
  • Four in ten participants in Germany, France, Italy and Great Britain say they do not intend to travel anywhere for holiday this year (46%, 43%, 39% and 46%, respectively).
  • When they do intend to travel, the results paint a mixed picture:
    – French and Italian respondents prefer to travel domestically (27% and 39%, respectively said they would travel domestically) with a minority inclined to go abroad (18% and 13%, respectively).
    – Germans are split: 21% plan to travel domestically and 21% prefer to go abroad. A small minority (12%) claim they intend to do both. 
    – While in Britain, 25% said they would travel domestically and 20% said they would travel abroad.
