Upon submission of their vaccination card and completion of their travel authorization form, once verified, international travelers will receive authorization of their vaccination card and a KN number.
b) Traveler must complete the Travel Authorization Form on the national website, including uploading your proof of vaccination and proof of booking at a Travel Approved hotel.
