Vaccines approved by the European Medicines Agency include Pfizer / Biotech, Modena, AstraZeneca’s Waxevria, Oxford, and Johnson & Johnson’s Jansen. Only those with a passport who have received the vaccine will be allowed to enter EU member states.
India has also demanded that EU member states recognize the vaccine certificate issued by the Indian authorities through the Covin app. The Indian authorities also say that the authenticity of such certificates should be verified through the Covin app.
India has informed EU member states that India will pursue a reciprocal policy for the preparation of Digital Covid Certificates approved by the European Union. If Covshield and Kovacs are included in the EU Digital Covid Certificate and Indian Covin vaccination certificates are approved, Indian health authorities will make it mandatory for all EU Digital Covid Certificate holders in the relevant EU member state to be exempt. Indian External Affairs Minister S Jayasankar has discussed the issue with top EU representatives. He made the remarks at a meeting of G20 foreign ministers in Italy.
