NHS COVID Pass for Isle of Man residents


The NHS Covid Pass shows your coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccination details.  

The pass provides proof of your vaccination status in a secure format which is internationally recognised.

Unfortunately, at this point in time the Covid Pass, nor Manx Care, can provide a Covid Recovery Letter or Certificate.

There are private providers that offer this service, either on or off the Isle of Man.

You may be asked to show your NHS COVID Pass:

  • to travel abroad
  • at events and venues in England and elsewhere, where proof of your COVID-19 vaccinations is required.

How to get your NHS COVID Pass

There are three options available to demonstrate your COVID-19 vaccination status: via the NHS App, through the NHS website and via letters from the NHS.

You can get a digital NHS COVID Pass in two ways:

  • online – download, save and print your pass on a home computer, laptop or mobile device
  • on the NHS App - view and show your pass on the NHS App on your smartphone or tablet.

To create a digital COVID Pass you will first need to register with the NHS and create a unique login, to ensure secure access to your personal vaccination record.

To do this you will need internet access, a mobile phone and an email address.

If you need the NHS COVID Pass for travel abroad, additional steps are required during the login process to prove your identity, and these are explained in the Frequently Asked Questions below.

You can get a NON-digital NHS COVID pass:

Anyone who is unable to access a digital pass can request a secure paper copy of their vaccination certificate to be sent to them. No login is required for this. 

The UK COVID Pass customer service centre will process requests for paper vaccination certificates from Isle of Man residents

To request a letter call Freephone number 0808 1624 119

Please do not call the short number 119 – this is for callers in the UK only. When calling from the Isle of Man you must dial the longer Freephone number.

Vaccinations abroad

If you live in the Isle of Man and had your vaccination abroad in certain countries, you can ask to have this added to your NHS vaccination record. Once it is added you can get an NHS COVID Pass. Find out more information.
