Ghanaians travelling to the United Kingdom have been exempted from the new Covid-19 travel directives regarding vaccine certificates .
This follows the public resentment that greeted the UK travel advisory that included Ghana, among countries whose vaccine certificates would be not recognized.
The UK came under criticism after they posted the new travel regulations that did not recognize vaccines administered across the world, including Africa.
Per the directives, fully vaccinated travelers to the UK from these parts of the world, were expected to go through the mandatory days of quarantine upon arrival.
According to the travel updates issued by the UK, one will qualify as fully vaccinated only if they are “vaccinated under an approved vaccination programme in the UK, Europe, USA or UK vaccine programme overseas with a full course of the Oxford/ AstraZeneca, Pfizer, BioNTech, Moderna or Janssen vaccines from a relevant public health body in several countries including Australia, New Zealand, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Singapore.”
Subsequently, the UK government added Covishield, the India-manufactured Oxford/AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine, to an updated international travel advisory.
