Those travelling abroad must show their Covid vaccination status in the form of an NHS Covid pass.
You can use the Covid pass service if you’ve had one or more jabs from Moderna, AstraZeneca, Pfizer, or Janssen.
When travelling abroad from Heathrow Airport or elsewhere you will be required to show your pass at the airport you are travelling from and to register with a Covid pass you will need to download the NHS app.
You need to have the same first name and surname on your vaccination pass as your passport, otherwise you may not be let onto the aeroplane.
Passengers will qualify as being fully vaccinated if they have proof that they received their final dose of the vaccine at least 14 days before travelling.

As well as providing a Covid pass, those travelling back to England will also need to take a Covid test two days before travelling and will need to book and pay for a Covid PCR test to be taken after arrival in England.
A passenger locator form is also required when travelling back to England.
Once passengers have arrived back home they must quarantine before they receive their PCR test results.
Those that have a positive result will need to self isolate for seven days.
If you are not fully vaccinated you will not be able to get a Covid pass and will have to follow the entry requirements of the country you are travelling into.
Some countries do not allow unvaccinated passengers into their borders.
