COVID Status Certification

COVID Status Certification (CSC) is the process so you can prove you have:

  • completed a COVID-19 vaccination course
  • are recently recovered from a previous infection with COVID-19
  • had a recent negative COVID-19 test

This proof can be used national and internationally in order to participate in domestic or border COVID Status Certificate schemes. 

The Government of Jersey COVID Status Certification Scheme currently provides paper and digital evidence of vaccination status for anyone who has a Jersey COVID-19 vaccination record.

Over the next few months, evidence of a previous Infection with COVID-19 and evidence of a recent negative COVID-19 test will be added into the Government of Jersey COVID Status Certification scheme.

Recovery certificates are not yet available, however recovery letters can be provided on request by contacting the helpline.

The Government of Jersey works closely with the UK Government and other international partners to make sure that the evidence provided in Jersey is internationally accepted and remains compatible with any developing systems.

Who can get a COVID Status Certificate

You can get your COVID Status Certificate showing your vaccination status if the Government of Jersey holds a COVID-19 vaccination record for you, either because:

  • all doses of the vaccine were delivered in Jersey

You can get your COVID Status Certificate in a paper or digital format.
