NHS App For Vaccine Passport

Travellers who have received both Covid-19 vaccinations will be able to use the NHS app as a vaccine passport for overseas travel from Monday (17th May).

The app will not show Covid test results, however, this is hoped to be incorporated by the time mass events return from 21st June when a domestic Covid status certification will be introduced.

NHS Digital, the health service’s technology unit, has been working on tweaking the app so that vaccine data is pulled out of medical records and shown on a separate screen that can be presented to officials.

Smartphone users must register to use the app, alternatively, those who don’t have a smartphone can call 119 for a paper letter confirmation.

The government website says: “From May 17, you may be able to show your Covid-19 vaccination status as proof of your status when travelling abroad to some countries or territories.”

“You can access your Covid-19 vaccination status through the free NHS App from May 17. You can access the app through mobile devices such as a smartphone or tablet. Proof of your Covid-19 vaccination status will be shown within the NHS App. We recommend you register with the app before booking international travel.”
