How to use the NHS COVID Pass when travelling abroad

You can show the vaccination records in your NHS COVID Pass as proof of your COVID-19 status when travelling abroad.

Proof of recovery from prior COVID-19 infection if you have tested positive in the last 180 days is also shown.

You will also need to follow additional rules set by the country you are travelling to when abroad.

You can get your 'COVID Pass' in digital format (via the NHS app or the NHS website) or in paper format (by contacting 119, who will send a copy in the post - this could take approximately 5-7 working days). 

Read more information on travelling abroad during COVID-19.

You should check that your first name and your surname on your passport match how they are displayed by your NHS COVID Pass at least 3 weeks before you travel. If the names are different, contact the surgery to have your details updated. Please note, name changes could result in temporary issues with matching your GP record to your hospital and prescription records.

If you have not been fully vaccinated, you should continue to follow the entry requirements of the country you are travelling to, such as proof of a negative COVID-19 test on arrival. You should carefully research the requirements of your destination country before travelling.

Further details on entry requirements can be found on the GOV.UK foreign travel advice pages and on the websites of your destination country.

If you think your vaccination record is incorrect, see what to do if your COVID-19 vaccination record is missing or wrong.

We at the surgery will not be able to provide letters as proof of COVID-19 vaccination status or as proof of recovery from COVID-19 infection. Anyone requiring such proof will need to download the NHS app or call 119 for a letter.
