Important: The ICRS 22 congress itself will be held in accordance with the so-called 2G+ Covid Concept for infection protection and hygiene measures. This means that only fully vaccinated and/or recovered attendees with an officially EU-recognized certificate have access to the event. Negative tested persons are not allowed to enter the congress/event area for the duration of the event. The obligation to maintain a minimum distance and the obligation to wear masks indoors during the event do not apply.

COVID Certificates: The purpose of the EU Digital COVID Certificate is to help facilitate free movement and travel within the EU for both EU citizens and non-EU nationals already in the EU. So far, 33 non-EU countries (and territories) joined the EU Digital COVID Certificate system, based on EU equivalence decisions. The COVID certificates issued in those 33 countries (and territories) are accepted in the EU under the same conditions as the EU Digital COVID Certificate. Likewise, the EU Digital COVID Certificate is accepted by those 33 countries. Those are: Albania, Andorra, Armenia, Cabo Verde, El Salvador, Faroe Islands, Georgia, Israel, Iceland, Lebanon, Liechtenstein, Moldova, Monaco, Montenegro, Morocco, New Zealand, North Macedonia, Norway, Panama, San Marino, Serbia, Singapore, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, Tunisia, Togo, Turkey, Ukraine, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, Uruguay, The Vatican.
