NHS COVID pass and vaccinations
Use the NHS COVID pass to show your vaccination status or test results if you need to when you travel abroad. One way to get a COVID pass if through the NHS app.
You do not need to show an NHS COVID Pass for domestic events and venues in England.
If you're travelling abroad, use the foreign travel advice on GOV.UK before you travel to find out the entry requirements of the country you're visiting.
The NHS COVID-19 app, which is a way to get the latest advice and find out if you may have been exposed to COVID-19, will close down on 27 April 2023.
