The NHS COVID pass is an official letter which demonstrates your coronavirus (COVID-19 status) in a secure way. You can apply for the pass from two weeks after you are fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
You may need an NHS COVID-19 pass to travel abroad, or to take part in Event Research Programme trial events in England. From Monday 19 July, you may be asked to demonstrate your COVID-19 status at places that use the service in England as a condition of entry to a venue or event.
You can also apply for, and receive, your COVID-19 pass on your mobile phone, using the NHS app. Please be aware that the NHS app is different to the NHS COVID-19 app.
