TAAI urges Centre to set up uniform protocols of vaccinated people

The Travel Agents Association of India (TAAI) has urged the Ministry of Civil Aviation (MoCA) and Tourism (MoT) to set up uniform protocols and SOPs for citizens who undertake vaccination against Covid-19 to ensure unhindered movement of such people. 

Commenting on this, Jyoti Mayal – President, TAAI, said, “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.”

She went on to say that many countries have started the process of vaccination. Travellers who have got the vaccination done are desirous of travel to India. “Currently, there is no clarity in terms of how their entry into India shall be permitted.There has to be a uniform policy that needs to be mandated by Centre towards how the verification and process for the same needs to be set.”

Jay Bhatia, Vice President, TAAI, added, “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 any hassle.”
