The vaccination passport is coming!

What if COVID-19 vaccination becomes a mandatory requirement for travelers?

If vaccination becomes a requirement for EU citizens to travel to other EU countries and for third-country nationals to travel to the Schengen area, different things will happen.

First, if the EU requires travelers to be vaccinated, even if travelers who have not been vaccinated find a loophole and manage to enter EU territory, travel insurers can refuse to cover them.

Representatives of various travel insurance companies have been in favor of last December SchengenVisaInfo.com confirmed that if the EU makes vaccination mandatory for travelers to be eligible for entry into its territory, they will update their policies in line with EU regulations, meaning they would deny coverage to those travelers who have not taken the vaccine .

Second, travelers from Third World countries who have so far been unable to obtain vaccines and whose populations will receive the vaccines, perhaps by the end of the year or next year, will be virtually denied entry to Europe.

For example, the article on the Schengen website states Visa Info.

The whole script was long overdue. This is what the performers read.

Not a word is said about the demonstrable risks and the deaths after injecting the vaccine. It is safe and that´s it.

A few more striking sentences:

Groups of anti-vaxxers, fueled by the many fake news and conspiracy theories that have been going on for months, have also rejected the idea of ​​“vaccination passports”.

“A survey conducted by the Institute of Global Health Innovation (IGHI) at Imperial College London and YouGov on people's willingness to be vaccinated, conducted in 15 countries, showed that only about 51 percent of participants were willing to vaccinated in 2021. "

"In addition, since most countries in the world plan to not complete vaccination for their entire population until sometime in 2022, this means that the travel and tourism industry will not begin its return to pre-pandemic levels until everyone is vaccinated."

“A survey conducted by the Institute of Global Health Innovation (IGHI) at Imperial College London and YouGov on people's willingness to be vaccinated, conducted in 15 countries, showed that only about 51 percent of participants were willing to vaccinated in 2021. " These are numbers to them. Which are probably closer to the truth than the media polls

Half still say: "Get rid of your vaccine!"

And that group is only getting bigger. Because why take a vaccine for a flu virus with a 99,98% survival rate? And 99,99% if you are under 70 years old. It's a matter of weighing up and then it's a simple choice. The flu is suddenly gone. Furthermore, we are going to work this out too loose and the rest of the country can continue to run.

All the theater is nothing new. The hospitals are not full. Go there. Flu seasons have always caused problems and improvisation. The media is a shame.

Read the short but telling article here:

It exposes so much for a good listener. And doctors really have to scratch their heads now whether they should revolt together. This week an extensive article that clarifies how DeepState is also intertwined in the medical world. It is a written script that is headed towards global vaccination. It has to be done. Without, and otherwise with coercion. And who refuses? it is excluded and one generation later everything is forgotten. That is why they also come for your kids. Especially for their heads. These people don't flinch.

This is the piece.

Other world countries, including Israel, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, have started to vaccinate their citizens, while others will roll out vaccines soon.

With millions of vaccines already purchased and agreements on their purchase, the world will be immune to COVID-2023 by 19, and by then many are hoping that life will return to what it was like before the pandemic outbreak.

Within less than a year, the pandemic has shaken the economies of most world countries and brought many industries to their knees, including the travel and tourism industries, which for many countries have made a powerful contribution to their economies.

These industries cannot wait for the entire world to be immune to COVID-19 to reboot as the economic losses that countries in the world have suffered are devastating.

That's why many countries are already working on 'vaccination passports' to get travel and tourism back on track.

Number of EU countries that offer and request “vaccination passports”

In April 2020, SchengenVisaInfo.com had reported that once a vaccine was finally effective, travelers could be asked to prove that they against COVID-19 have been vaccinated to qualify for the European Union and the member states of the Schengen area.

At the time, an EU official had confirmed to SchengenVisaInfo.com that proof of vaccination would also be required for Schengen visa applications and visa-free entry.

Now, ten months later, Denmark is the most recent country to announce its plans to reintroduce a document proving the holder has been vaccinated against COVID-19.

Denmark's Ministry of Health and the Elderly announced in early January that it is working on a "Vaccine passport" for Danish travelers, which will soon be available to all Danish citizens who are vaccinated. The document will serve as a “vaccination passport” for them to travel to the countries where vaccination is mandatory for entry.

“The Ministry of Health and the Elderly is working on a COVID-19 vaccine passport, which is expected to be ready in early 2021,” the ministry said confirming plans.

Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis has even sent a letter to the President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, urging the Commission to vaccination certificate against the Coronavirus to facilitate travel between the block.

On the other hand, Cyprus had warned border authorities by March 2020 in early December 2021 everybody would allow that can demonstrate that he / she has been vaccinated, in addition to the regular entry requirements (passports, visas, etc.).

Other countries, such as Iceland and Hungary, are already applying the so-called “immunity passports” requirement, which is essentially proof that the traveler was previously infected with COVID-19 (but no longer), and now has antibodies.

While Hungary currently allows almost no one to enter its territory, those from other EU countries who can prove they've already had the virus have been free to enter since the beginning of September.

Travel and tourism organizations against 'COVID-19 vaccination passports'

While many welcome the idea of ​​“vaccination passports” to revitalize travel and tourism, especially in Europe, many oppose the idea and insist that it will delay the reopening of the world to travel.

Travel experts from the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC), a forum for the travel and tourism industry, believe it will take a long time to vaccinate the majority of the world's population, particularly those in less advanced countries or in other countries. 

According to WTTC President and CEO Gloria Guevara, only a very small portion of the world's population has taken the vaccine so far; That's why she believes those who haven't should be allowed to travel with negative results from COVID-19 tests.

“In addition, the most vulnerable groups should be prioritized, a blanket vaccination requirement would simply discriminate against non-vulnerable groups, such as Generation X, Z and millennials, who should be able to travel with proof of a negative COVID test,” she says. 

The introduction of “vaccination passports” has been opposed by another group for a very different reason.

Anna Beduschi, an academic from the University of Exeter, stresses that such a requirement would endanger the fundamental rights of Europeans by dividing people into categories based on their health status.

“Vaccination passports can create a new distinction between individuals based on their health status, which can then be used to determine the degree of freedoms and rights they enjoy,” Beduschi said, noting that “vaccination passports” pose essential questions for protection. of data privacy and human rights.

Groups of anti-vaxxers, fueled by the many fake news and conspiracy theories that have been going on for months, have also rejected the idea of ​​“vaccination passports”.

A survey conducted by Imperial College London's Institute of Global Health Innovation (IGHI) and YouGov on people's willingness to be vaccinated, conducted in 15 countries, found that only about 51 percent of participants were willing to commit to Vaccinated in 2021.

French citizens were the least willing to take the vaccine, with only 35 percent of French respondents claiming they would take the vaccine as soon as they were offered it.
