Joint-Spokesperson at the Ministry Dr Samir Kumar Adhikari said that the Ministry issued a press statement here on Sunday and urged for the same.    

The Ministry’s attention was drawn towards the matter when the news of some manpower companies charging the foreign employment hopefuls for issuing certification of vaccination with QR code came to their knowledge, read the statement.     Some service-seekers had complained that they had to pay fees for online forms to obtain vaccination cards with QR codes. The Ministry has also warned of taking action against those manpower agencies or individuals charging fees for vaccination cards with QR codes.
