Amid concerns among Covishield-vaccinated Indians facing issues with travel to Europe, the EU said on Tuesday the medical body of the union, EMA has not received a request for the approval of Covishield  in the COVID-19 ‘vaccination passport’. It will examine any such request when received, as per its procedures,” the EU said in a statement.

The European Union has not yet recognised the India-made version of the AstraZeneca-Oxford University vaccine.

So far, only those vaccinated by either Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca-Oxford and Johnson & Johnson vaccines will be allowed restriction-free travel within the EU during the pandemic.
