All the travelers who travel to European Union (E.U.) are disqualified for entrance in their own country. Hence, innocent people are facing turmoil.

Twitter account -

I took issues against the EU for not condoning the Covishield as healthcare. I have taken diplomatic and regular activity from our side. I assure every vaccine holder to remain self-reliant towards our product. We will approach the highest level.

I hope EMA (European medical agency) will allow the “Green pass” within 2-3 weeks. “Green pass” was allowed on June 27. From 1st July, we will permit the entrance of passengers.

Finally, all the Covishield vaccine holders are free to travel.
