Total nine European countries have told India that they will let those travelers in their country who have taken the shots of Covishield vaccine.

Some tension cropped up recently between India and Europe over exclusion of Covishield in accepted vaccines by European Union vaccine passport programme.

As per the programme, they were accepting travelers from other countries who were fully vaccinated with any of the western vaccines (Moderna, Pfizer-BioNTech, Johnson & Johnson and Oxford-AstraZeneca) and allow them to travel freely.

Absence of Covishield in this list stoked some anger and feeling of retaliation in India against European travellers. However, Indian Foreign Ministry source said on Thursday that Austria, Germany, Slovenia, Greece, Iceland, Ireland, Spain and Switzerland had informed that Covishield will now be accepted for travel purposes in Europe.

Estonia says that it will accept all the vaccines authorised by Indian Government which includes Covishield, Indian version of Oxford-AstraZeneca and Covaxin, a vaccine developed by a local firm called Bharat Biotech.

Another source says that India would lift the quarantine compulsion for people carrying EU Digital COVID certificate but only if they also do the same to Indians travelling to their country with vaccination certificate of Indian vaccine.
