Will you need a COVID-19 'vaccine passport' to travel? Here's what they are and how they might work

Airlines and others in the travel industry are throwing their support behind so-called vaccine passports to boost pandemic-depressed travel, and authorities in Europe could embrace the idea quickly enough for the peak summer vacation season. Technology companies and travel-related trade groups are developing and testing various versions of the vaccine passports, also called health certificates or travel passes. It is not clear, however, whether any of the passports under development will be accepted broadly around the world, and the result could be confusion among travelers and disappointment for the travel industry. Here are some key questions about the health credentials.

"It's ongoing, every day, every week." Reyes-Perez, a staff attorney for the South Texas Pro Bono Asylum Project, or ProBAR, a Harlingen, Texas-based legal advocacy group, is on the front line of efforts to ensure migrant  children flooding the border  receive legal advice and are better equipped to navigate the U.S. immigration system. For every migrant minor he advises, several others in federal custody go without any legal counsel, advocates and attorneys said. The children, some as young as 3 years old, are expected to explain why they seek asylum.  In recent weeks, federal officials have faced a steady rise in the number of migrants ar

Hello fab ones, it's your favourite stop for everything fashion, style, luxury, business and lifestyle. Last week Friday was all fun, buzz and glamour with the Premiere of the second part of the Famous Coming To America released June 29th 1988, 33 years ago, fans had been waiting in anticipation for the sequel as well as wondered how the current story-line would fit into, and as a continuation considering the time gap.  I think the writers were smart to continue the focus on family whilst taking the comedy up a notch to create a fun experience for its audience.  In addition we get to see and understand a little better, the life and culture of the people of Zamunda, their upbringing as seen through Prince Hakeem's Children. As well as the passing of tradition from the old to the younger generation!  The best part of this sequel no doubt is the celebration of rich african fashion as can be seen from the outfits worn by the stars in the movie.
