WTTC issues concern for complexity around vaccine requirements

    World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) issued (24-Aug-2021) concern that more layers of complexity around vaccine requirements are increasing barriers to mobility and cross border travel, with Austria recently announcing a 270 day expiry date for coronavirus vaccine certificate. WTTC stated such a move could significantly delay the recovery of the country’s travel and tourism sector, deterring travellers from visiting, causing further damage to the Austrian economy. WTTC warned that the restart of international travel could be delayed without worldwide reciprocal recognition of all approved coronavirus vaccines, and vaccine inequality could become an increasing barrier to international mobility.
