Covid-19 vaccination status when traveling or attending events or venues in England
Please see the latest government guidance of how to demonstrate your covid-19 vaccination status when traveling abroad
How to access your COVID-19 vaccination status
Through the NHS App
You can access your COVID-19 vaccination status through the free NHS App. 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 that you register with the app before booking international travel. For access via the NHS App you do not need to contact your GP.
The NHS App will continue to be developed with further updates in the future. This will include the ability to show your COVID-19 test results.
Using the Online form
Get your NHS COVID Pass letter
Use this service to get a letter showing your coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccination status.
You can use this letter if you’re travelling abroad, or going to an event, and need proof you’ve had your COVID-19 vaccination.
If you’re going to an event, you’ll need to wait 2 weeks after you’ve been fully vaccinated before you can use this letter.

By calling 119
If you do not have access to a smartphone and know that the country you are travelling to requires COVID-19 vaccination status, you can call 119 and ask for a letter to be posted to you.
Request a letter only if you:
- have been fully vaccinated by the NHS in England (you should wait 5 working days after your second dose)
- are planning to travel in the next 4 weeks to a country that requires evidence of COVID vaccination
- cannot access the digital service via the NHS App
We expect the letter to take up to 7 working days to reach you.
The letter will be sent to the address registered with your GP. The 119 call handler you speak to will not be able to see your address to check this with you. If you have recently moved house, make sure you’ve given your new address to your GP practice before calling 119.
Do not contact your GP surgery about your COVID-19 vaccination status. GPs cannot provide letters showing your COVID-19 vaccination status.
