COVID Status Certification

About COVID Status Certification

Your COVID Status Certificate allows you to show others that you've had 2 doses of a COVID-19 vaccine in Jersey.

This will provide Islanders with secure written proof that they have received two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine. This may be required by other countries for several reasons, including entry at the border.

Who can get a COVID Status Certificate

You can get your Jersey COVID Status Certificate if the following applies:

  • you've had 2 doses of a COVID-19 vaccine
  • both doses of the vaccine were delivered in Jersey

How to get your COVID Status Certificate

A COVID-19 Status Certificate will be sent automatically to your registered address.

By Thursday 10 June, COVID Status Certificates will be posted to all Islanders who have received their second dose of the vaccine on or before Friday 28 May.

Following the initial mail out, certificates will be automatically be sent to those who have received their second dose of the vaccine. Islanders should expect their COVID Status Certificate to arrive within 2 weeks of their second dose.

The certificate contains a number of security features and a unique reference number, making it difficult to forge.

What you can use it for

A COVID Status Certificate may be required by other countries for several reasons, including entry at the border. These certificates are not currently required for use in Jersey, however you can choose to use it to prove that you have received two doses of a COVID-19 MHRA approved vaccine

If you're not fully vaccinated

You will only be provided with a COVID Status Certificate once you have received 2 doses of a COVID-19 vaccine in Jersey.

Using your COVID Status Certificate for travelling to Jersey

Our Safer Travel Policy allows fully vaccinated passengers reduced testing and isolation requirements when entering Jersey. Testing and isolation requirements will depend on your travel classification.

To be eligible for 'fully vaccinated' status, the following criteria must be met:

  • you must have received a complete course of an MHRA approved vaccine:
    • 2 doses for a 2 dose vaccine (Pfizer, AstraZeneca or Moderna vaccines)
    • 1 dose for a single-dose vaccine (Johnson & Johnson Janssen vaccine) 
OR have received 2 doses of trial vaccine through an approved UK trial

  • the final dose must have been administered at least 2 weeks prior to arrival in Jersey
  • both doses must have been administered in the Common Travel Area (United Kingdom, Republic of Ireland, Jersey, Channel Islands or the Isle of Man) From 29 June, we will accept proof of an MHRA approved vaccine from anywhere in the world
  • you must make a legal declaration of your fully vaccinated status on the pre-travel registration form
  • you must provide evidence of vaccination status on request on arrival in Jersey (unless you have been vaccinated under the Government of Jersey Vaccination Programme)

Vaccinated in Jersey

If you have been vaccinated in Jersey and have had your second dose more than 2 weeks before your planned travel, you'll be able to input your social security number into your pre-travel registration form before arriving in Jersey. You won't need to show your COVID Status Certificate on arrival into Jersey.

Vaccinated outside of Jersey

If you have received a completed course of a COVID-19 vaccine in the Common Travel Area (UK, Isle of Man, Channel Islands or Republic of Ireland), and have had your final dose more than 2 weeks before your planned travel, you can declare your vaccination status on your pre-travel registration form before arriving in Jersey.

From 29 June, we will accept proof of a complete course of an MHRA approved vaccine from anywhere in the world.

Proof of your vaccination status, using approved evidence from your country of residence, must be available on request.

Acceptable evidence of fully vaccinated status for people not vaccinated in Jersey

You must complete your travel registration form to declare that you're fully vaccinated. 

Until secure COVID Status Certification documents are issued by all countries, the level of evidence of full vaccination available from different jurisdictions in the Common Travel Area will vary. 

As a minimum, your evidence of fully vaccinated status must contain the following information:

  • your full name
  • details of all doses of your vaccination, including:
    • the date of all doses (your final dose must have been more than 2 weeks before your planned travel)
    • the type of vaccine received (which must be MHRA approved or part of an approved UK trial)

Other forms of evidence may contain additional information, including:

  • your date of birth
  • country of vaccination

Acceptable evidence that can be used as proof of fully vaccinated status:

  • a government issued secure paper letter
  • a government approved app showing evidence of vaccine records
  • completed government issued vaccination appointment card
  • PDF of GP record of vaccination 
  • an official letter from an institution demonstrating participation of a UK approved trial; this must be an official letter from the chief investigator of the UK trial, or the local principal investigator for the trial site, be on official headed paper and include details of the study title and design

From 29 June, it will be possible to submit evidence of vaccination from more than one jurisdiction as proof of fully vaccinated status. This means, for example, someone who has received their first Covid-19 vaccine in England and second Covid-19 vaccine in Jersey, will be able to upload details of both these doses separately.

Make sure you have evidence of your fully vaccinated status and photographic ID to confirm your identity.

The criteria is subject to change, particularly when more secure COVID Status Certification documents are issued by all countries. You're strongly advised to recheck the list of acceptable evidence prior to travel.

Vaccinated in another country outside the Common Travel Area

For people that have been vaccinated outside of Jersey or the Common Travel Area (UK, Isle of Man, Channel Islands or Republic of Ireland), we are not currently accepting evidence of vaccination. You will need to follow the relevant rules for testing and isolation based on a green, amber or red travel history.

From 29 June, we will accept proof of a complete course of an MHRA approved vaccine from anywhere in the world.

More information about vaccination status and travelling to Jersey

International travel

You can show your COVID Status Certificate as proof of your vaccination status when travelling abroad.

The rules of entry for other countries are changing frequently and some may require proof of vaccination. You also may need to follow other rules when travelling abroad, such as getting a negative pre-departure test or testing on arrival.

Make sure you:

  • check the entry requirements for your destination country on the GOV.UK foreign travel advice pages
  • get up-to-date information from the website of your destination country
  • confirm with your destination country that they will accept a Jersey COVID Status Certificate as proof of vaccination status

You may still be required to show other proof like a negative (PCR) test, and you may still have to isolate on arrival.
