Good News For The Travellers, Says Adar Poonawalla As 16 European Countries Give A Nod To Covishiled

by Swati Sahoo

As France became the 16th European country to recognise Serum Institute of India’s (SII) COVID-19 vaccine Covishield as a legitimate vaccine for overseas travellers on Saturday (July 17, 2021), SII’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Adar Poonawalla, expressed his delight on Twitter. The fact that Covishield has now been recognised by 16 European countries, according to Poonawalla, is indeed fantastic news. He did, however, warn travellers to pay attention to travel advisories that vary by country.

“It is indeed good news for travellers, as we see sixteen European countries recognising Covishield as an acceptable vaccine for entry. However, despite being vaccinated, entry guidelines might vary from country to country, so do read up before you travel,” Adar Poonawalla said in s tweet.

Meanwhile, as numerous European Union countries declined to recognise the Covishield vaccine as proof of immunisation for travel to EU member states, the topic of its recognition as proof of immunisation for travel to EU member states has been debated. Furthermore, the Indian government has pushed European Union member countries to recognise both Covishield and Covaxin in order to make travel easier for Indian citizens.

Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Finland, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Latvia, the Netherlands, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland are among the 16 European countries that have recognised Covishield, with France being the most latest to do so.

Travel restrictions for fully vaccinated travellers were eased in France on Saturday. “Travel to or from France for fully vaccinated travellers is no longer restricted, regardless of the nation of origin. Nonetheless, we highly advise against travelling to countries on the “red” list from France “Read the travel advisory” from France’s Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs.
