Will an Invisible Tattoo Be Required for Travel?

This article published by the BBC, offers a hint at the future of travel…that includes travellers being required to “present customs officers with an entrance visa and a vaccination record. That could be a paper card – or a tiny tattoo on their arm, invisible to the naked eye but readable by an infrared scanner.” Is this acceptable to you? If such a scenario is not acceptable, then we must be prepared to refuse it, even if such action comes at a high personal cost. By refusing, you will reduce revenues/profits so that such overreach will cost them a great deal too.
