Going to his official Twitter handle, the minister wrote: “The UK has decided that white certificate [and] vaccines are fine but most non-white vaccine certificates [and] are not Chinese vaccines. Despite extensive evidence.
Referring to the UK’s decision to update its travel advisory, Omar asked: “Health ideas or the hangover of the colonial mindset?”
On Wednesday, Britain placed Pakistan on a new “rest of the world” list. Therefore, Pakistan is no longer on the list of countries whose vaccination certificates are recognized in the UK.
Pakistan was removed from the red list and placed on the amber list along with several other countries on September 22, but in the latest travel advisory, the UK said it would work with Pakistani authorities to release the National Database and Registration Authority.
