Travel Agents Association of India (TAAI) is urging Civil Aviation and Tourism Ministries to establish protocols for travellers who will be vaccinated against COVID-19. As many countries have started the process of vaccination, travellers will express intent to travel to India. Given this situation, the government has not offered any clarity in terms of if these travellers will be permitted into the country. TAAI is appealing to the government to create a uniform policy that includes a verification process for travellers who have been vaccinated.
Certificates will enable travellers to resume their activities
“We have urged the Government of India through MoCA and MoT to set guidelines for vaccinated travellers, issue verifiable certificates and set SoPs for the same. This shall enable vaccinated travellers to resume their activities to pre-covid times and live towards a better future. Every person vaccinated in India must be granted a certificate and our government should also tie-up with all countries verifying and accepting their Covid Vaccine certificates,” Jyoti Mayal, President, TAAI, said in an official statement.
TAAI wants the government to issue certificates to citizens post vaccination and these certificates should be accepted by authorities across India. “We are proud that our Government has rolled Made in India vaccines. To make travel and tourism as free and comfortable as possible, TAAI shall be working closely with the Government on formulating and setting standards which shall be acceptable and verifiable globally. We have proposed immediate action so that vaccinated travellers desirous of travelling Domestic, International and even for Inbound to India shall be free from hassles,” Jay Bhatia, Vice President, TAAI, said.
