As expected, the pandemic had a catastrophic impact on the travel industry. The estimated decline in international tourism was at the loss of 1 billion arrivals. The domestic tourism sectors met with more oversized adverse shocks. While the tourism industry's recovery globally will take time, travel restrictions are getting waived off in many places. It is due to the ongoing vaccination drive that’s gaining momentum day after day. However, to travel abroad during Covid-19, individuals will have to carry an assurance mandate certificate ensuring they are vaccinated successfully.

Following the footsteps of the latest travel guidelines, the path-breaking Co-Win portal has created an option that will make the paperwork easy for you. Through this portal, you can link their vaccination certificates to their passport numbers.
