The DHWFD stated that, “It’s a World Health Organization (WHO)-approved document required for international travel to specific countries.

“Countries with specific viruses (yellow fever, malaria etc.), you are required to be vaccinated before entry.

“This international document is bonafide proof of your vaccination and is identified worldwide. Covid-19 is one of the viruses on that list that most countries will require persons to be vaccinated before entry.”

They have advised that a standardized, universally recognized card has to be used thus why the international card has to be used as opposed to the regular national one.
