A fully vaccinated person can now obtain the WHO-compliant International Travel vaccine certificate. CoWin has finally enabled the feature for downloading the foreign travel certificate. Ram Sewak Sharma, CEO of the National Healthy Authority, announced in a statement that the certificate complies with WHO's digital recording of COVID-19 certifications for the discovery of vaccination status data.

Sharma added, "We will add more such features. If there are specific requirements needed in the vaccination certificates for specific countries, we will format the certificate, according to advice from The Ministry of External Affairs. India too will then accept certificates of other countries’ travellers in the same format. Thus, the beneficiary details will be the same, only the format will change."
