Serum Institute's Covishield vaccine has been approved in eight European Union nations and Switzerland amid the tussle over the 'green pass' for Covid vaccines. EU states including Germany, Slovenia, Austria, Greece, Iceland, Ireland and Spain have approved the Covishield vaccine. This means those injected with the Covishield vaccine will be exempted from travel checks to these nations. 

Recently, India said that it would recognise the EU’s digital Covid certificate on a reciprocal basis and would not accept the same until the EU accepts Indian vaccines. The green pass will be required for travel in the EU from July 1. It will exempt those who have taken two doses of a vaccine from compulsory quarantine.
