Giving a major relief to people who want to travel abroad, the Central Government has allowed the users to link their Covid-19 vaccination certificates to passports on the CoWin portal. Now, you can update your passport number in your vaccination certificate.

As per updates, the Aarogya Setu app also allows for a one-time name change to ensure that the name on the vaccine certificate and the passport is the same. Earlier, the Central government had announced new guidelines for Covid-19 vaccination, stating that those travelling abroad for education, jobs, or as part of the Indian contingent for the Tokyo Olympic Games, will have to get their vaccination certificates linked to passports.

Centre issues SOPs for vaccination of persons undertaking international travel for educational purposes, or employment opportunities, or as part of India's contingent for Tokyo Olympic games

CoWIN certificates to be linked to Passport of such Travelers

Mention of vaccine type as ‘Covishield’ is sufficient; no other qualifying entries required in Vaccination Certificates.

Government of India has been supporting the efforts of States and UTs for an effective Vaccination drive under the ‘Whole of Government’ approach since 16th January this year. With the aim to universalize the Vaccination drive, the Government has opened vaccination for all adults above 18 years of age with the onset of Liberalized Phase III of India’s vaccination strategy from 1st May 2021.

It has been a constant endeavour of the Union Government to streamline the vaccination process to increase coverage of all segments of the population. In this regard, taking note of the several representations received by Union Ministry of Health & Family Welfare for allowing administration of second dose of Covishield for such persons who have only taken first dose of Covishield and are seeking to undertake international travel for educational purposes or employment opportunities or as part of India's contingent for Tokyo Olympic games, but whose planned travel dates fall prior to completion of the currently mandated minimum interval of 84 days from the date of first dose, Union Health Ministry has written to States/UTs to facilitate vaccination of such persons.

The Ministry has issued SOPs in this regard which have been conveyed to States/UTs. States/UTs have been advised to widely publicize and take all necessary measures to immediately implement these SOPs.

The SOPs are as follows:

At present, based on the recommendations by National Expert Group on Vaccine Administration for COVID-19 (NEGVAC), the schedule of Covishield vaccine under National Covid-19 Vaccination Strategy is to administer the 2nd dose at 12-16 weeks interval (i.e. after 84 days), after administration of 1st dose.

With the receipt of several representations for allowing administration of dose of Covishield for such persons who have only taken first dose of Covishield and are seeking to undertake international travel for educational purposes or employment opportunities or for participation in India's Contingent for Tokyo Olympic games, but whose planned travel dates fall prior to completion of the currently mandated minimum interval of 84 days from the date of first dose, the issue was discussed in Empowered Group 5 (EG-5) and appropriate recommendations have been received in this context.

With a view to providing full coverage of vaccination and facilitating international travel for such genuine reasons, the following procedure shall be followed for administration of second dose of Covishield vaccine for such beneficiaries.

This special dispensation will be available to —

a. Students who have to undertake foreign travel for the purposes of education.
b. Persons who have to take up jobs in foreign countries
c. Athletes, Sportspersons and accompanying staff of Indian contingent attending International Olympic Games be held in Tokyo

New federal funding aims to support recruitment, retention of international students. People are welcoming and that is longed-for news for the Cape Breton Island Centre for Immigration in Sydney. The division of New Dawn Enterprises is encouraging international students and their families to make the island their home.

About two years after launching a pilot, the centre's international student support and integration program was recently awarded $600,000 from the federal government to continue its work to support settlement and retention.

Officials say the money from the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency will provide help for up to 800 students the first year, and scale up in years two and three. With this program, the student doesn't have any hard time.

In 2020, Nova Scotia's population reached a record high, based largely on its immigration efforts. But there remains a challenge in keeping newcomers who are often attracted to the larger city centres.
