As vaccination Against Covid-19 picks up pace and restrictions are gradually being lifted with many planning a trip abroad, the government has introduced a provision allowing individuals to update their vaccination certificate with passport number.
One can login to the CoWin portal and raise an issue. This will provide the passport option. Once the passport number is entered and submitted, the new vaccination certificate will be generated within seconds with passport number on it, the government tweeted.
The facility has been provided with a view that once international travel picks up, vaccination certificates will be asked for by many countries even though testing still continues to be the primary global requirement approved by WHO for international travel, an official said.
India has administered over 31.62 crore doses of Covid vaccines till Saturday 8 pm and aims to cover all adults above18 years of age by end of this year.
