    I invite you to report  here what the current travelling situation is across the globe re the Cov experimental jab

    Foreign nationals visiting Bali will need to be vaccinated to enter
    JULY 7, 20213:13pm



    NEWS.COM.AU1:15
    Unvaxxed people are 'variant factories' who will prolong the pandemic
    The dire prediction comes as the World Health Organisation reported mutant strains are already outpacing the current wave of vaccines.

    Australians hoping to travel to Bali in 2022, when international travel has been tipped to resume, will need to be vaccinated or potentially barred from entry, according to reports.

    Indonesia’s Covid-19 Task Force has issued a new set of requirements for foreign entry, which mandates that those entering Indonesia must test negative for coronavirus and also show a card or certificate that indicates they have received their full dose of a Covid-19 vaccine.

    The new ‘no vax, no fly’ policy has been met with various reactions from foreign nationals currently living in Bali, with many taking to social media to air their frustrations about getting the jab.

    While some anti-vaxxers have slammed the rule, other travellers currently living in Indonesia say they would prefer to get the covid jab in their own home countries. Others, however, say that like in Australia – getting access to the jab is proving near impossible.

    According to local media, one Facebook user said they recently arrived in Jakarta from the Netherlands and intended to travel to Bali, but were now unable to do so because they “do not want to be vaccinated”.

    While Indonesia’s Tourism and Creative Economy Minister Sandiaga Uno suggested Bali would reopen in July 2021 to vaccinated tourists, a growing surge in Covid-19 cases has pushed this date back for the foreseeable future.

    “We are targeting the end of July, beginning of August, but we just have to be mindful of where we are in this recent spike,” he said.

    “We will be waiting for the situation to become more conductive.”

    Phuket

    The new rules are similar to what’s been implemented in Thailand’s popular tourist island of Phuket.

    The resort island is now allowing vaccinated international travellers to enter without quarantine restrictions.

    EUROPE

    All Details on EU COVID-19 Vaccine Passport Revealed: Here’s What You Need to Know
    July 2, 2021


     

    The European Union has made available its COVID-19 passport for all EU citizens and residents, as well as for specific categories of travellers from third countries, since July 1.

    The procedures for the launch of the certificate have been completed on the side of the EU Commission since the beginning of June, throughout which month the Member States have one by one started implementing it.

    SchengenVisaInfo.com announced on June 1 that seven EU countries had already started to issue EU COVID-19 passports – Bulgaria, Czechia, Denmark, Germany, Greece, Croatia and Poland. On June 4, Iceland also started to implement the pilot system for the issuance of COVID certificates.

    Back in April 2020, SchengenVisaInfo.com reported that a vaccine would for sure become mandatory for those wishing to travel throughout the Schengen Area once it is approved and available.

    However, the Commission first brought forward the proposal for the creation of a document which would enable those vaccinated to travel restriction-free throughout Europe in mid-March this year, in a bid to restore the freedom of travel for vaccinated persons, those who have recovered from the virus, and those who test negative, amid COVID-19.

    Since then, the proposal has gone through all of the EU procedures for the approval of regulation, and now, on July 1, all of the Member States, except for Ireland, have started issuing it.


    Ireland had previously warned that it will most likely implement the scheme by mid-July and not before. According to the European Commissioner for Justice Didier Reynders, Ireland’s delay is a result of the recent cyber-attack on the Irish Health Service Executive.

    “Due to a cyber-attack in Ireland, it was difficult to reach the goal to have all of the technical solutions in place before July 1, but for all the other Member States, we don’t have any concerns about the way to proceed,” the Commissioner said during a briefing in Brussels, pointing out that so far, Ireland is the only one of the 27 EU Member States that has not started to issue and verify such documents.

    Following, in this article, find all of the necessary information on the EU COVID-19 travel certificates, also called vaccine passports among travellers.

    In post 1 the article said;

    " According to local media Coconuts,it is understood the vaccine certificate requirement will not apply to foreign nationals with diplomatic visas, visiting on an official state capacity, or entering Indonesia under the Travel Corridor Arrangement scheme. The TCA is not meant for the general public, but rather exclusively for business travellers to facilitate the nation’s economic activities.

    The corridor has been set between Indonesia and the United Arab Emirates, China, South Korea, and Singapore."

    Indonesia Travel corridor arrangement

    Going on a Business Trip to Indonesia Soon? Read the Requirements Here
    Tue, 23 Feb 2021



    With an estimate of US$5.8 billion being wiped from Indonesia’s tourist revenues as of July 2020, the country plans to recover its coronavirus-battered economy strategically. The government has negotiated on building bilateral travel corridors with countries including the United Arab Emirates, China, South Korea, and Singapore. The government is continuously negotiating with other countries to allow essential workers to travel to Indonesia in order to strengthen economic and diplomatic ties.

    These bilateral arrangements are not meant for the general public. They have been set up exclusively for business travelers to facilitate the nation’s economic activities. In other words, Indonesia has established travel corridor arrangements with the United Arab Emirates, China, South Korea, and Singapore for those traveling with diplomatic or fundamental business objectives.

    Though the bilateral agreements differ from one country to another, all four travel arrangements follow similar procedures and regulations. People who plan to travel to Indonesia must consider the following points:

    1 | Those entering Indonesia must be fundamental business travelers who are nationals of the United Arab Emirates, China, South Korea or Singapore.

    2 | They must be invited by sponsors, including the governments, institutions, and businesses that have already established a travel agreement with Indonesia.

    3 | The sponsor must apply for an Indonesian e-Visa on behalf of the traveler.

    4 | Before their departure, travelers must obtain a negative PCR test certificate processed 72 hours before the departure time and present return tickets for the trip.

    5 | Once they have arrived at the negotiated entry points in Indonesia, travelers must go through a health check and undergo a PCR test, all of which will be performed at their own expense.

    6 | Until they have obtained the PCR test certificate, travelers must stay at a non-residential, self-funded accommodation. They can proceed with their business travel purposes in Indonesia only when they have presented a negative test result.

    7 | They must use non-public transportation or transportation provided by the host or institution of their sponsor.

    8 | The government or institution sponsoring the traveler is obligated to ensure that the traveler follows all Indonesian health protocols during his/her stay in the country.

    Due to different bilateral negotiations between Indonesia and each of the above-mentioned countries, these travel arrangements are linked to specific requirements and regulations. The special terms and conditions applied are as follows:

    COVID VACCINE PASSPORT PROGRAMS BY COUNTRY: QUARANTINE AND TESTING EXEMPTIONS

    . COVID vaccine passport programs exempting travelers from quarantine and, sometimes, testing, are starting to be adopted by countries around the world. Here are the countries currently which currently have vaccine passport programs in place and information on those that are coming soon.

    Countries with vaccine restriction exemptions
    The following countries have already implemented programs exempting vaccinated travelers from certain exemptions. This list will change rapidly, so please always consult with your team for the latest information.

    Note: In general, vaccine passports and exemptions are effective two weeks from the date of the second shot. (As we learn more about requirements for the 1-shot vaccine, we will update this). For all countries, proof of vaccination is required upon arrival.

    Covid vaccine passports: Everything we know so far

    KEY POINTS

    Several governments are opening borders if travelers can prove they’ve been vaccinated or tested negative for Covid-19 but it’s unclear if digital credentials will be required.

    Italy, Iceland, Greece and Spain now allow or are opening their borders to people who’ve been vaccinated or who recently tested negative for Covid-19. The European Union has agreed to open its borders to more vaccinated tourists, including from the U.S.

    The question is: How will individuals prove their vaccine or Covid status?


    As of Wednesday, almost half of the total U.S. population had received at least one Covid-19 vaccine dose. New Covid infections in the country continue to drop. As of Thursday, the seven-day average of daily new Covid infections is at its lowest level since June 22, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University.

    That trend is helping people return to pre-pandemic activities — from concerts to indoor dining to live sporting events and even international travel. Vaccinated people no longer need to wear masks or physically distance indoors or out, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said earlier this month.

    Retailers like Walmart and Costco and hotel chains including Hyatt dropped their mask requirements for vaccinated customers this month, unless it’s required in local rules. U.S. officials have said they are largely relying on people being honest about their vaccine status, and retailers and hotel chains have said they don’t plan to check for a proof of a vaccine.

    CANADA

    COVID-19 vaccine passports and travel to Canada: The latest updates


    Latest update: July 5, 2021

    Canada is now using COVID-19 vaccine passports, also known as proof of COVID-19 vaccination, to facilitate international travel. Although only in a limited capacity.

    As of July 5, Canada is allowing fully vaccinated travellers to skip the mandatory 14-day quarantine. This is the first instance where Canada is treating fully vaccinated travellers differently from unvaccinated travellers, and it confirms that proof of vaccination will be an important tool in Canada’s border re-opening strategy. Notably, this only applies to travellers who are “currently permitted to enter Canada.” This means that Canada’s borders remain closed to the vast majority of foreign nationals. Only those who meet one of the exemptions to Canada’s COVID-19 travel restrictions will be able to enter the country.

    ISRAEL
    First In First Out: The Rise and Fall of Israel’s Green Pass




    On 1 June 2021 the Israeli green pass regime ended. The green pass regime was instituted in Israel in February 2021, issuing a digital certificate to those who have been vaccinated or recovered from Covid-19, granting them the ability to take part in leisure, sports, and cultural activities. In our previous blog post we described this regime in detail and discussed the main questions that it raised, particularly focusing on the complexity of balancing individual rights of people not holding the green pass, with public health requirements.

    Another concern was the informal expansion of the 'green pass' to spheres beyond these addressed in the legislation, with the prominent example being the labour market: while the green pass did not formally apply to it, some employers took measures including the termination of work of unvaccinated employees. We engage with these questions in more detail in a forthcoming article we co-authored with a few colleagues (see T Luster, E Albin, A Gross, M Tabenkin and N Davidovich, Promoting Vaccination from a Human Rights and Equity Perspective: Lessons from the Israeli Green Pass, European Journal of Risk Regulation). In the post and the article we argue for the need to examine the 'green pass' through constitutional tests, such as it having a legitimate purpose and being used following the principle of proportionality. In the article, we stress that, as part of these tests, a periodic examination of the policy is required, to ensure that the constitutional standards are maintained over time. This is crucial given the need to take into account developing scientific findings on vaccinations and the changing reality of the pandemic.

    Such a periodic examination has indeed taken place in Israel in the past few weeks, and the Government did not extend the 'green pass' regime when it expired on 1 June 2021. This followed the significantly declining numbers of infections in Israel, correlated to the high percentage of vaccination of the population. The 'green pass' regime was entrenched in regulations issued under Israel’s Corona Law. The regulations (and in fact the law itself), included a 'sunset clause', and given the lack of extension, the regime ended on 1 June 2021. This was done in conjunction with the lifting of other measures, such as restrictions on gatherings and on the number of people in various establishments. The most important measures remaining in place are the duty to wear masks indoors and the quarantine requirements for non-vaccinated or non-recovered people who came in contact with Covid-19 patients. Also remaining in force are measures regarding international travel, such as restrictions on travelling to certain countries, and requirements of quarantine (for non-vaccinated individuals) upon returning from virtually all countries. The quarantine requirements are the only remaining distinction between vaccinated and non-vaccinated individuals.
