Showing your vaccination status

If you are required to show your travel operator proof that you’ve been fully vaccinated with one of the authorised vaccines before you travel.

This proof should be:

  • A digital NHS Covid Pass (Wales/UK)
  • an EU Digital COVID Certificate (EU DCC) for Europe
  • a CDC card for the USA – you’ll also need to show proof of USA residency, such as your USA passport, visa or Green Card

If you cannot show an EU DCC or CDC card you must follow the rules for those who are not fully vaccinated in the Rules for foreign travel to and from Wales: coronavirus guide

digital NHS COVID Pass is available for people in Wales who have had two doses of vaccination and need to urgently travel to a country that requires Covid vaccination proof.

You can call 0300 303 5667 to request a COVID Pass for essential international travel if you are unable to use the digital NHS COVID Pass or require a bilingual certificate.

Please note: if your Passport details and your NHS Covid Pass details are different you may need to carry evidence to explain the reason why they are not the same.
