India’s Vaccine Certificates Now Recognised In These 96 Countries (Check Full List)

It has been a long and arduous journey for all of us since the outbreak of the coronavirus in March 2020. It forced all of us inside our homes. It even forced nations to close their borders. International travel came down to an all-time low. Now as vaccinations throughout the world are in full swing it has become a reason for increasing confidence among nations. The government of India has also been making efforts to make international travel an easy endeavor. The government has released a list of nations in which India’s vaccine certificates will be recognized.

Recently, the Press Information Bureau of the Government of India released a press in which it has given the list of countries that have agreed for mutual recognition of vaccine certificates.

“The Union Government’s commitment to accelerate the pace and expanding the scope of COVID-19 vaccination throughout the country has resulted in crossing the 100 Cr milestone in the administration of doses on 21st October 2021. The Union Government continues to be in communication with the rest of the world so that beneficiaries of the world’s largest COVID vaccination program are accepted and recognized, thereby easing travel for education, business and tourism purposes,” the circular quoted Union Minister of Health & Family Welfare Dr. Mansukh Mandaviya.

Currently,  96 countries have agreed to mutual recognition of vaccination certificates and also those who recognize Indian vaccination certificates of travelers fully vaccinated with COVISHIELD/WHO-approved/nationally approved vaccines.

Consecutively, persons traveling from these countries are provided certain relaxations as enunciated in Union Health Ministry’s Guidelines on International Arrivals.
