"Mutual recognition of Covid-19 vaccination certificates continues! Fifteen more recognitions for India's vaccination certificate," said MEA spokesperson Arindam Bagchi in a tweet.
"Mutual recognition of Covid-19 vaccination certificates with India: Australia, Bangladesh, Belarus, Estonia, Georgia, Hungary, Iran, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Lebanon, Mauritius, Mongolia, Nepal, Nicaragua, Palestine, the Philippines, San Marino, Singapore, Switzerland, Turkey and Ukraine," the MEA said in a statement.
The Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare said earlier that nearly 100 countries had agreed to the mutual acceptance of vaccination certificates of India’s Covid vaccines and the vaccination process.
The minister in an event recently said, “Mutual recognition of vaccinations increases ease of travel for tourism and business thereby boosting economic recovery the world so desperately needs.”
“India is willing to supply Covishield and Covaxin to all countries,” said the Union Health Minister at a meeting with the ambassadors of Latin American and Caribbean nations on Thursday.
