Kathmandu: India and Nepal agreed on Tuesday to recognise the Covid-19 vaccination certification. During a function here, India's Ambassador to Nepal, Vinay Mohan Kwatra, and Nepal's Health Secretary, Roshan Pokharel, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in this respect.
Travellers from the two countries were having difficulties due to a lack of mutual recognition of Covid vaccinations. According to Nepal's Ministry of Health and Population, anyone who have been properly vaccinated can now travel between the two countries after providing their immunisation certificate. Nepal has been immunising its citizens against Covid-19 with India's Covishield, China's Vero Cell, and three additional American vaccines.
According to a statement made by the Indian Embassy in Kathmandu, "this Memorandum of Understanding represents a significant step in easing travel for fully vaccinated travellers of both countries and marks another milestone in strengthening Covid-19 related collaboration and coordination between New Delhi and Kathmandu."
