The Pakistan Readymade Garments Manufacturers and Exporters Association (PRGMEA) has suggested the government to launch a ‘Covid-19 vaccination certificate’ for the vaccinated people as an ‘immunity passport’ in line with the practice of China to facilitate its citizens for international travelling.

In a joint statement on Tuesday, Central Chairman PRGMEA Sohail A. Sheikh and Chief Coordinator Ijaz Khokhar observed that Corona Centers across the country can issue the vaccine certificate to the persons who are vaccinated, showing user’s vaccination status and virus test results along with his CNIC and passport details to facilitate the business community, especially the exporters, to obtain visas and travel permit abroad.

Sohail A. Sheikh pointed out, in post-corona age, this kind of health certificate is going to be mandatory for frequent travelers, in the embassies to obtain visas, to travel abroad and for check-in hotels in other countries.
