Mapped: The 15 countries accepting vaccine passports this summer
In recent months it has become a near-enough certainty that vaccine passports, along with testing, will be the key to opening up our holidays in the post-lockdown era.
Vaccine certification technology is likely to be developed for Britons so they can verify their Covid inoculations – something which is reportedly being backed by Cabinet ministers.
Transport Secretary Grant Shapps, who is heading up the Global Travel Taskforce, will lead work on options for the certificates, which would operate in a similar way to yellow fever cards. They are being prepared in anticipation of an agreed international system for countries to accept certificates as a condition of entry for travellers.
Here we take a look at the countries that have already opened to vaccinated arrivals, and those that have said they will do so at a later date. Note that each country has its own specific border policies regarding UK arrivals. Always check the Foreign Office advice before you book or travel.
