About the NHS COVID Pass and your NHS account

An NHS COVID Pass shows your coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccination details or test results. You may be asked to show your NHS COVID Pass if you travel abroad.

If you have full access to your NHS account, you can use the NHS App or website to view and download your COVID Pass. You'll need to provide extra ID to prove who you are before you can have full access to your NHS account.

There are also other ways to get your NHS COVID Pass.


Some countries may also ask for a negative COVID-19 test result. Always check the entry requirements for the country you're visiting before you book your travel. There is step by step travel advice on GOV.UK.

Getting a COVID Pass in your NHS account

To get your COVID Pass in your NHS App, or your NHS account in a web browser:

  1. Log in.
  2. Select Get your NHS COVID Pass.
  3. Follow the instructions on the screen.

More information about the NHS COVID Pass service

You can find out more about who can get an NHS COVID Pass, different ways to get one, and what to do if your pass has expired on the main NHS COVID Pass page.

COVID Pass security

When you access your COVID Pass in your NHS account you will use NHS login. NHS login has advanced security features to protect you and minimise any risk of fraud.

Your COVID Pass displays only the details needed to create your COVID-19 status and no other personal health records.
