Filipce: PCR Test or Vaccination Certificates for Entry in or Exit from Country

Health Minister Venko Filipce revealed on Monday that the Infectious Diseases Committee has recommended to the government to introduce an obligation for providing either a negative PCR test, or vaccination certificate or confirmation for recovery from COVID-19 upon entry in the country, as well as when leaving it. “On Tuesday morning, we will also finalise the instructions about how this measure will be implemented. We were also discussing introduction of local measures for the city of Tetovo, where the number of new cases greatly increased in the past few days. Our goal is to motivate the citizens to accept vaccination, because it makes no sense for them to spend money for PCR test for each travel,” Filipce said. The announcement of these measures provoked reactions from tour operators, who warned that if the measures are adopted, they will stage protests.
