  • you’re fully vaccinated with a COVID-19 vaccine used in the UK
  • you had your vaccination in England or the Isle of Man
  • you’re registered with a GP in England or the Isle of Man

A GP is NOT able to issue a pass or any form of documentation that is valid for travel.
Persons travelling should always consult the ever changing requirements for entry into countries they intend to travel to.  Some countries for example will allow children access if they are travelling with fully vaccinated adults with no requirements for testing, other countries insist that children have PCR tests prior to travel.

There is no current planned change to citizens under the age of 16 being able to access a COVID Pass for travel.
