The World Health Organization (WHO) has criticized the entry rules, which require mandatory vaccination for everyone who wants to visit a particular country. This was stated at the Geneva headquarters of WHO, answering a question from TASS about how the organization treats restrictions on entry for passengers vaccinated with vaccines unrecognized in the country of destination.

"WHO does not support the use of proof of vaccination as a precondition for international travel, given the largely unequal availability of vaccines in wealthy and low-income countries," the organization said.

It also recalled the provisions of the International Health Regulations that vaccines must be WHO-approved and universally available before they can be considered a precondition for travel.

The WHO has repeatedly called for an end to inequality in access to vaccines.

In July, the Emergency Committee of the World Health Organization (WHO) recommended that national governments not require confirmation of Covid-19 vaccination for international travel.
