UN World Tourism Organization condemns vaccination tourism

Published on : Wednesday, May 26, 2021

The World Committee on Tourism Ethics has strongly condemned the idea of vaccine tourism. It’s an independent cell of the General Assembly of the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO). It seems that, the committee does not support vaccine tourism and ‘vaccination holiday packages’.

As per UNWTO, “vaccines should not form part of vaccination holiday packages and must remain a global public good.” The committee thinks that the COVID-19 certificates for international travel must be free and offered to everyone without any favoritism.

On such certificates, UNWTO adopted few recommendations for global travel under the Chairmanship of Pascal Lamy. Also, they have recommended that these certificates must be limited in time and use.

Lamy said, “We hope that this recommendation will provide a global ethical framework that will aid the much-needed recovery of tourism”.
