All travelers will need to bring their vaccination cards or show proof of being fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to board any flight
From Friday, any travellers will need to bring their vaccination cards or show proof of being fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to board any flight. This measure comes after the surge of domestic air travel with the record 3.5 million after airlines slashed their prices to target the more frugal domestic audience.
The COVID-19 Crisis Management Coordination Centre (CCMCC) have recommended mandatory vaccination card to enter public places like offices, hotels, restaurants, cinema halls, stadiums, airports and parks and much more from January 17. After the CCMCC suggestion, the Health Ministry issued a notice to all 77 districts about the CCMCC's recommendation.
But the implementation of the measure has been delayed to January 21 because of no clear universal guidelines regarding vaccination cards being released by either CCMCC or the Health Ministry. While welcoming the implementation of vaccination cards, many from the tourism and the travel industry criticize the government for not providing clear guidelines and protocols to follow and enforce.
