The ICAO DTC Type 1 and de mDL standard are currently being used/prepared to be used in several pilots. What are lessons learned, what impact do the panellists see and or expect. Also the EU Digital Wallet will have an important role in these developments. The travel ecosystem connects public and private parties around a traveller. Using a digital identity in an ecosystem that crosses international borders and legal systems is complex, for passengers ànd stakeholders, and requires international standards for technology, data privacy and trust frameworks.
This panel discussion is addressing what is currently happening to make the travel and tourism ecosystem ready for the use of a digital identity that has the level of assurance to cross an international border, board a flight and sign in to a hotel. The travel ecosystem still revolves around a physical passport/ID card or drivers licence and this is about to see incremental, but pivotal changes. The digital wallet will also ad to the way we get ready to travel and add verifiable credentials that travellers can share in advance of their trip.
