Apply for a Travel COVID vaccination certificate
If you have received one or both doses of your COVID-19 vaccinations in Northern Ireland, you can apply for a Vaccination certificate for international travel.
How to apply for a COVID Travel certificate
COVID certificates are available for international travel and domestic use.
To apply for a Travel certificate, you need to create a verified nidirect account.
Parents and guardians can apply through their nidirect account, for Vaccination certificates for young people up to the age of 17.
You will need to upload a photo of the young person’s passport as part of the validation process.
11 to 15 year olds can display the certificate on their own phones by downloading the COVIDCertNI app and scanning the certificate sent to their parent or guardian.
