If you want to go before, you can go on the requested date if 50 Euros more is paid with the VIP packages we open. Two doses of vaccine are given. We enter your information into the system of the health ministry of the country you are going to and make an appointment from there. We also work with consulates.

Agencies are obliged to insure their guests and fulfill their promised program. This tour can be arranged if they provide vaccination service as an extra package in Serbia or Dubai and there is no problem with this in the laws of those countries. Here, we applied to the Ministry of Health about whether it is legal to promote it and we are investigating this. There hasn’t been a comeback yet. However, what consumers should pay attention to is whether the agencies have agreed with the local healthcare agency that they have agreed there and whether those vaccines are real vaccines. We inspect the agencies, but it is a question mark how reliable the health agencies in other countries are during this period. “
