What if I don’t have a smartphone?
Alternatively, if you do not have access to a smartphone or similar device, you can request that an NHS Covid Pass be sent to you by mail.
You will be able to use this service if you are one of the following:
- You are 16 years of age or older
- You are fully vaccinated with a COVID-19 vaccine used in the UK
- You have been vaccinated in England or the Isle of Man
- You are registered with a general practitioner in England or the Isle of Man
If you are not registered with a GP, you can still access this service as long as you have an NHS number.
Additionally, in the event that you have been vaccinated in Scotland or Wales, you are again eligible to go this route if you are registered with a GP in England.
You can apply for an NHS Covid Pass letter by calling 119 – as stated on the NHS website.

In addition to the rule that requires an NHS Covid Pass to enter certain indoor spaces, the Prime Minister also announced several other Covid restrictions for the UK on Wednesday.
New measures now make it mandatory to wear face masks in most indoor locations – including theaters, cinemas and indoor sports arenas.
As of Monday (December 13), government guidelines for working from home, where possible, will be reintroduced.
Additionally, anyone considered to be in close contact with a suspected case of Omicron will be able to have daily testing rather than following the current 10-day self-isolation rule.
However, this rule will only come into effect when new tests, which indicate the presence of the variant, are available.
The government has made the decision to tighten restrictions as the Covid pandemic once again threatens to overwhelm the NHS.
The UK yesterday reported more than 50,000 new cases of Covid for the sixth time in a week.
The figures, released by the British Health Security Agency (UKHSA), also revealed that UK cases of the new Covid strain, Omicron, are on the rise.
As of Friday, December 10, 1,265 cases of Omicron have been officially confirmed in the British Isles.
