Hungary, Serbia recognize India’s vaccination certificate: MEA

In a major development, Hungary and Serbia agreed to recognize India’s COVID-19 vaccination certificate, announced Ministry of External Affairs Spokesperson Arindam Bagchi.

“Mutual recognition of COVID-19 vaccination certificate begins! India and Hungary agree to recognize each other’s COVID-19 vaccination certificate,” said the official spokesperson for the ministry.

Taking to Twitter the Spokesperson for the Ministry of External Affairs further said, “Yet another country recognizes India’s vaccination certificate! Traditional friendship with Serbia translates into mutual recognition of COVID-19 vaccination certificates.”

The Ministry further added that the mutual recognition of the COVID-19 vaccination certificate will facilitate the movement of people from one country to another for education, business, tourism, and beyond.

The announcement came a day after the United Kingdoms recognized India’s ‘COVISHIELD’ and reversed its decision of mandatory quarantine for vaccinated Indian citizens.

Announcing the decision, the British High Commissioner to India said, “No quarantine for Indian travelers to UK fully vaccinated with Covishield or another UK-approved vaccine from 11 October. Thanks to the Indian government for close cooperation over last month.”

Earlier under the Vaccine Maitri initiative, India had sent the consignment of domestically produced COVID-19 vaccines to Serbia. Whereas, Hungary was the first European Union country to approve for emergency use of the CoviShield vaccine.
