THERE ARE now more and more tourist destinations in the world that only allow entry and exit for people who have received a booster or booster vaccine, including the United Arab Emirates which requires its citizens to get a booster vaccine if they want to travel abroad.

Quoted from Travel Pulse, the local government said the obligation to get three doses of the vaccine was in line with their vision of recovering from the pandemic.

In Hawaii, travelers going to the island of Maui must also show evidence of a COVID-19 booster or test negative if they want to have dinner in a restaurant, visit a bar or work out at the gym.

Starting January 15, travelers heading to France must show proof of a COVID-19 booster in order to get a French Health Pass, a certificate as proof of a tourist’s permit to enter museums to bars.

The Netherlands also announced that the vaccine certificates that will be received from February are travelers who have already received a booster.

In the US, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is urging people to postpone travel by cruise ship regardless of their vaccination status due to the emergence of the Omicron variant that is spreading around the world. [antaranews/photo special]
