Rich Indians Are Making Travel Plans to Get COVID Vaccine in the UK

By James Greig, Varsha Rani

A Mumbai-based travel agent told news agency PTI that some people have raised queries about “how and when and if” they can travel to the U.K. to get the vaccine. “I have told them it is too early to say (whether Indians can get the vaccine in the U.K.). In November, Mumbai-based Gem Tours & Travels announced a coronavirus vaccine tourism package for rich clients who wish to travel to the U.S. We will finalise details only if and when the U.S. government allows outsiders to come and get the vaccine”, Tejas Kapasi, director of Gem Tours & Travels told VICE. Industry experts are cynical about vaccine tourism and if it is even a good idea.
