British travellers could be issued with coronavirus immunisation documents to enable them to take holidays abroad, a government minister has indicated.
The government has insisted it has no plans to issue “vaccine passports” to grant greater freedoms to those who have had the jab.
Greece has said it will waive quarantine requirements from May for arrivals who can prove they have been vaccinated against Covid-19.
Asked if the UK would help in providing certificates, Mr Cleverly told the BBC Radio 4 Today programme: “It is often the case that the entry requirements for countries are for vaccines or inoculations, and that is not an uncommon practice.
“We will work with international partners to help facilitate their border arrangements and their immigration arrangements.”
According to The Times, the Foreign Office, Department for Transport and Department of Health and Social Care are working on arrangements should countries require proof of vaccination as a condition of entry.
It is not yet clear whether the proof would come in the form of a stamp in a passport or a separate official document.
Mr Cleverly said: “The decisions that individual countries make about their own incoming arrangements is obviously up to them.
“We are incredibly proud of the speed and the breadth of our vaccination rollout and of course, I think the whole world hopes, that the vaccination programme will be a way of getting back to normality.”
Mr Cleverly told Sky News that at present most countries, including the UK, require a negative test result on arrival.
“And we’ll have to see what countries, what the international community, put in place once vaccines around the world are as effectively distributed as they are here in the UK,” he added.
