COVID Status Certification (Covid Passports)
Vaccination Status Scheme Launched
A service that allows people travelling abroad to access their record of vaccination status themselves has launched. Only those planning to travel to a country or territory where a record of vaccination status is needed as an entry requirement should download the record or request it. While there are no countries currently requiring vaccination status to travel, international travel restrictions can change quickly requiring such measures to be in place. The measures are intended to ease the burden on the NHS by removing the need for people to ask their GP for a status record.
As Scotland’s vaccination programme progresses, vaccination status will be replaced by digital COVID Status Certificates, which will include vaccination and testing data to be used for outbound international travel. People will be able access their COVID-19 Vaccine Status online, by logging on to:
A Freephone Covid Status Helpline will allow people to get the record posted to them. It can be contacted on 0808 196 8565.
The Scottish Government continues to urge a highly cautious approach to international travel, given the risk of new variants.
