“We always strive to provide convenience for our users, and the latest feature to download international travel certificates is just one more step in the direction. In addition, users can also add their certificate to their DigiLocker in Paytm ”, a Livemint report quoted a spokesperson for the company owned by One 97 Communications.
The spokesperson further noted that this new facility will also help users update their passport details to obtain certificates that comply with the World Health Organization (WHO) Documentation of Covid-19 Certificates (DDCC) mechanism: Status vaccination (VS).
However, travelers should check country-specific Covid-19 guidelines before finalizing their travel plans, the spokesperson said.
International travel certificates have become a necessity due to the coronavirus pandemic, and the governments of the world require these documents to allow the entry of people to the respective countries. In recent days, governments have reintroduced travel restrictions due to a new outbreak of the virus, as well as due to the emergence of the Omicron variant, whose cases were first reported in southern Africa last month. The WHO has classified it as a Variant of Concern (VoC).
