India’s Health Minister recently opposed the idea of Vaccine Passports ahead of the G7 Summit. However, quietly the Indian government has issued guidelines to link your COVID-19 vaccine certificate to your passport.
India’s Health Minister Harsh Vardhan on Friday said India was against the implementation of “vaccine passports” for travel to foreign countries amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Vardhan was speaking at a health ministers’ meeting of the G7 countries, where India was invited as a guest.
Either the minister isn’t aware of or is lying outright infront of the whole world. Because the Indian government has already planned to implement Vaccine Passports.
Vaccine certificates from CoWIN will now be linked to passports for people planning international travel for education, work opportunities or as part of the Indian contingent for the Tokyo Olympics, the government announced on Monday.
