There's no gambling. It's a binary question and answer:

Is the certificate printed by Manx Care / IOMG explicitly valid in the jurisdiction that the traveller seeks to enter ?

 

I'd really like to know which countries have explicitly stated they will accept the Manx Care / IOMG piece of paper.  Do Manx Care / IOMG have a list?

Are there any countries that have agreed to accept it?

 

No.

Well first of all I am not “Howie”, assuming quite probably you mean Howard Quayle. 

Which leads on to the question, not being “Howie” can I overstate my importance?

Childish post. I suggest you stick to Facebook. More your audience

I suggest you… well, we all know

Step away from the internet.

It is all very confusing now.

We have a member of Manx radio and iomg staff in hospital with his mum telling us not to contact at him.

I hope he is ok.

Just in case others don't know what you're talking about:Screenshot_20210729-234105_Chrome.thumb.jpg.36bd711cba05f4d458c545f6ed89d70f.jpg

 'Manx Care' sounds like some company started up and doing medical stuff, rather than the Isle of Man National Health Service

We can maybe cope with the change of name but we can hardly expect the world to adjust to such a name change so quickly. 

Plus, the word 'Manx' has the letter X in it. So what, you may say. Well, the world and indeed the internet generally, certainly in its early days, would automatically see the word 'manx' as spam. Some may remember this problems with a manx.net email address in t'olden days.

What's in a name?

Whoever suggested the name 'Manx Care' needs their arse kicked.

Interestingly the Travel to Malta advice on the Maltese Government's own site is quite comprehensive:

The recognised vaccine certificates include:
  -The Official Maltese vaccination certificate 
  -The EU Digital COVID vaccination certificate, issued by EU, EEA and non-EU countries connected to the EUDCC  gateway
  -The United Kingdom NHS (paper or digital) Coronavirus (COVID-19) Vaccination Certificate
[...]  -The Gibraltar, Jersey and Guernsey  vaccination certificate

There's something missing from that last line isn't there?  It would be interesting to find out why they all got the deal and the Isle of Man didn't.  Especially as there had already been problems identified with entry to Malta from the Island.

The automatic assumption that because Channel Islanders are allowed in to Malta, Manx people should be too is just that, an assumption. One that should not be relied on.

Well Malta have apparently agreed to accept the Channel Islands pieces of paper

All countries tend to be fairly legalistic about who they let in.  The problem here is that vaccination certificates are accepted as valid from other places in similar situation to us, but somehow not the Isle of Man. 

That suggests the problem lies with the Isle of Man not Malta.

The Manx vaccination certificates and PCR test results are issued on badly formatted Word files which can be edited.

Who in their right mind would accept those?

How many countries have the IOM contacted and said "will you accept our piece of paper?" Which ones?

It's not apparently. It's fact. 

 

Other than failing to state something obvious what is the point you are trying to make ?

I'd like to know

There is an approved WHO and EU standard both for the QR code and the paper certificate pass.

For paper it includes a security watermark and a barcode.

The biometric info to be contained in the QR or barcode is also set out.

Simple question, do IoMG letters comply? If not, why not?

Absolutely correct. Your description is bang on. I think MC was suggested by Jonathan Michael. Tynwald was foolish in the extreme to accept it.

Yawns, Claiming what?

I guess you were tired and can’t think straight. 

Claiming we’re a sovereign country

We know you’re a government fan boy, but really 🤷🏻‍♂️

No they don't. Not even close to complying with any international standards. The PCR certificate isn't even formatted to a single page. Maybe that's why they made it editable... 😔

Adding "Manx" to a name usually includes a significant price rise see Manx gas and telecom for examples.

It’s a letter printed off the computer with scanned automatic signatures. 
 

I have just listened to Ashford giving another daily waffle to the Nations Propaganda Mouthpiece, saying there is no timescale, we won’t be prioritised, etc, etc, etc. Absolutely spineless, no backbone to fight for island residents or interests. However, if the argument relates to financial matters, money laundering or another register then watch the likes of Ashford roll over for the tummy tickle and compliance. I accept the situation, even though it’s not ideal, but I expect our elected politicos to have some steely mettle, vigour and fight for the islands interests and residents.

They should go the full hog and just called it BallaCare, or even BallaCare4U. Like Ballakebabs or Balla Brokers etc.

Anyway, there is a thread already on this subject, but no oine seems to consider the matter of the name. It is not a side issue, it does matter, a lot.

The reality is that it suits them if people can’t travel as they have benefitted hugely from a rise in local spend throughout this pandemic.
