If you do not have access to a computer, call 119 to request paper proof of your vaccinations if you have had both vaccines. Please wait five working days after your second and only request if you are planning to travel in the next four weeks and you cannot access the digital service. Expect to wait up to seven working days for the letter to reach you.

Some countries require a negative test result regardless of your vaccination status so please check the entry requirements.
