NHS Highland have advised
- Patients should not contact your GP Practice to ask for a Covid vaccination passport or status certificate – they will not be able to provide any standard document.
- International certification standards have not yet been agreed.
- The Scottish Government is working to support the re-opening of international travel once it is safe to do so. Scottish Government is working with the other UK Nations and with the World Health Organisation to agree on potential future COVID certification requirements for international travel.
- As part of this, Scottish Government are developing a technical solution that could allow people to access their Covid vaccination status directly.
