Greetings Sirs,

I took both doses of vaccine in India. My final vaccination certificate is issued with Aadhar Card as ID proof. I do not know if it is acceptable by MoH Kuwait. If not we need to get new certificate showing Passport number.

When I contacted the national helpline, state helpline and district war rooms no has any idea about the procedure to change the ID from Aadhaar to Passport Number. No clarity is available on this matter though the center has given directives just two days before for the news individuals who work in abroad to include the passport number.

Request Indian Embassy to address this matter to Shri. Dr. S. Jaishakar and resolve the matter by letting the center administrators where we took the vaccine to have the privilege to change the ID proof or letting the common service centers in the state to have option to upload proof of Passport and change of passport number for approval of change in vaccination certificates.

Request the minister to discuss and address the CoviShield - Oxford AstraZeneca name confusion. We are hoping the MEA and Indian Embassy team can convince the MOH authorities about this and add it to the list of "Approved Vaccines" by Kuwait.

It will save a lot of headache in correcting the already issued Certificates and aid the Expats with valid residence to return without any confusion or problems.

If vaccine certificate is issued based on Aadhar Card, is it acceptable by MoH Kuwait or we need to get new certificate showing Passport number? ...

Request to Indian Embassy to raise this issue with Dr. S.Jaishankar who is coming Kuwait.
