Speaking at the launch of a COVID-19 vaccination drive for all tourism and hospitality frontline workers, tourism CS Najib Balala said starting next year, there will be no traveling out of Kenya without a vaccine passport just like a yellow fever card.
Adding, the government is working in consultation with the International Air Transport Association (IATA) to develop the vaccine passport.
“There will be a vaccination card just like the one for yellow fever being pushed by IATA . We are continuing to consult with them . At the moment we cannot say that people need to be vaccinated to travel. But soon it will be,” CS Balala said
Meanwhile the government is already vaccinating as many Kenyans and all frontline workers in the Tourism and Hospitality to encourage more tourists to come into the country.
The first 5000 vaccines for the sector will be distributed over the next 10 days, with at least 50,000 more to be distributed once the second batch arrives in the country.
