'Vaccine stamps' could become a thing in the future for British travellers with stamps in your passport showing if you've been inoculated against Covid-19.

The Telegraph reports that Department for Transport ministers are considering the move to boost the travel industry and will allow holidaymakers to go abroad hassle-free -- result!

This all came about when Conservative MP James Sunderland raised the need for passport vaccines to the Prime Minister.

He said: "We must do everything possible to boost the economy by re-opening our travel, hospitality, leisure and business sectors and how fantastic would it be to have our planes, trains and boats full again.

"A vaccination stamp is simple, would save all the hassle at either end and really boost confidence."

In fact, some airlines are already considering it in the future with Qantas’ chief executive Alan Joyce saying last week that it would be a “necessity” for passengers to be inoculated before travelling.

With a whole host of vaccines just around the corner, it looks like going on holiday is going to be a lot easier and safer in 2021!
