The NHS COVID Pass service has now closed. There are no longer any domestic requirements to demonstrate your vaccination status in England.
The NHS COVID Pass is no longer required to travel abroad to any countries.
If you are travelling abroad, you should review travel entry requirements for the countries you will visit or travel through.
The NHS COVID Pass was developed at the height of the pandemic to let you share your COVID-19 vaccination status in a secure way. It was mainly used for international travel, as well as for some domestic purposes, such as entry to venues or events.
Your NHS COVID Pass letter is used for travel abroad and to show others that you’ve had a full course of the COVID-19 vaccine (including a booster vaccination if you have received one).
If your child is between the ages of 5 and 11 years old, you can also get an NHS COVID Pass letter for travel that provides evidence of vaccination or prior infection from COVID-19 within the past 180 days.
You should receive a letter within 7 working days of requesting one.
If you do not have access to a smartphone, computer or tablet, you can request a letter by calling 119 from within the UK.
