The giant travel agency confirmed this information on Oct. 1, saying that travelers could soon take advantage of the verifiable COVID-19 vaccination records stored in the Apple Health app, allowing them to use them as proof of vaccination before they go on their journey.
As of the moment, people across the globe need to show their vaccination cards whenever they go from far places. They need to do this whether they are traveling by sea, air, or land.
This allows government officials or travel companies to ensure that visitors are protected from the deadly COVID-19. If you are vaccinated, there's a low chance that you will get infected by the virus. However, you still need to follow safety measures since vaccines are not 100% efficient.
