Where can I find further information on Scotland’s COVID vaccination certification scheme?

Information on how the vaccine certification (or COVID passport) scheme will work, who is exempt, and what you need to do if you are going to a venue or event can be found on the Scottish Government website.

I have been vaccinated in Scotland. How do I show proof of vaccine status?

You can provide proof of your vaccination status in a number of ways:

  • use the NHS Scotland COVID Status App which is free to download. This will allow access to a digital copy of your vaccine record on your mobile device. You need a passport or driver’s licence to complete the identity check.

  • request a paper copy of your vaccine certificate from NHS Inform. Use this if you don’t have a passport or driver’s licence.

  • use a downloadable PDF on your phone or a printed copy (as an interim measure only).

I have been vaccinated in Scotland but I am having difficulty in using the NHS COVID Status App. What can I do?

Further information on the NHS Covid Status App, including frequently asked questions, can be found on the NHS Inform website.

I have been fully or partially vaccinated elsewhere in the UK or Crown Dependencies. How do I show proof of vaccine status?

If you were vaccinated in England, Wales or Northern Ireland, you can have your NHS Scotland COVID Status app updated to include this information. If your vaccination from another part of the UK is not showing, phone the COVID Status Helpline on 0808 196 8565 so they can investigate.
If you were vaccinated elsewhere in the UK or in the Crown Dependencies, you can also provide confirmation that you are fully vaccinated in one of the following ways:         

  • use the NHS App (if from England or Wales)

  • use Covid NI (if from Northern Ireland)

  • use the paper letter of certification, issued by England, Wales, Northern Ireland, Jersey or Guernsey

You will also be able to present physical proof to the venue who will carry out a visual check.

I am an international student from within the EU. How do I show proof of my vaccine status?

We will accept proof of vaccination from across the UK and Crown Dependencies as well as from members of the EU Digital Covid Certificate Scheme.  The EU scheme currently includes all EU Member States plus an additional 16 countries & territories.

The letter and app on your mobile device will contain a QR code which you will be able to present to the venue who will carry out a visual check or scan the code with a verifier app to confirm the record is authentic.

You will also be able to present physical proof to the venue who will carry out a visual check.

I am an international student and I was vaccinated outside the EU. How do I show proof of my vaccine status?

To begin with, vaccine certification rules for international visitors will align with the current border rules. Visitors from other nations, such as USA, will need to provide the same proof of vaccination status that is accepted for entry into the UK.

You will have to request proof from the country in which you were vaccinated. You will be able to present physical proof to the venue who will carry out a visual check.
