From 17 May 2021, people in England who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 can demonstrate their vaccination status for international travel. A full course is currently two doses of any approved vaccine. Vaccine status will be available from:
- The NHS App which you can download from app stores
- The NHS website (www.nhs.uk – Coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccination status for travelling abroad) from 17 May 2021
It may take more than a week for your identity to be checked and verified so you can use these services.
If you cannot access these online services, and you have had 2 vaccines, you can request a paper letter from the NHS by calling 119. Only call 119 if you had your second dose more than 5 working days ago. It may take 7 working days for the letter to arrive.
This practice is not able to provide you with a letter that shows your COVID-19 vaccination status.
When you’re planning your travel, check the latest information at: www.gov.uk – Demonstrating your COVID-19 vaccination status when travelling abroad. Make sure there is time to get proof of your vaccination status before you leave.
