New Delhi: For the relief of expatriates, the Central Government has set up a facility to link the vaccination certificate with the passport on the Cowin portal. Arogya Sethu app tweeted that, from now on, the passport number can be recorded in the vaccination certificate.
The vaccination certificate is mandatory for expatriates returning to foreign countries. The condition is to receive the vaccine approved in foreign countries. It is also suggested that the passport number be recorded in the vaccination certificate to ensure the authenticity of the document.
To facilitate this, a special system has been set up in the Cowin portal, which is used nationwide for vaccine registration. The facility to attach the vaccination certificate with the passport has been provided. The service provided at the Cowin Portal is to record the passport number on the vaccination certificate.
Earlier this month, the central government issued a revised guideline in this regard. The guideline says that those going abroad should attach the vaccination certificate with their passport.
