This page contains information about the COVID status certificate, including a list of frequently asked questions. If your question is not in this list, it may be on the current travel requirements FAQ page.

In order to be considered a fully vaccinated traveller, an arriving individual must provide the necessary proof they have received a full course of an approved vaccine (AstraZeneca, Pfizer, Moderna and Jannsen) and 14 days have passed since their last dose.

Such persons will need to be able to prove that they have been fully vaccinated (plus 14 days) with a document (digital or paper) from a national or state-level public health body (plus a translation if that document is not in English) that includes as a minimum:

  • Forename(s) and surname(s)
  • Date of birth
  • Vaccine brand and manufacturer
  • Date of vaccination for every dose administered
  • Country or territory of vaccination and/or certificate issuer

Guernsey's vaccination certificates

Guernsey's proof of vaccination certificates have been developed to closely align in format, content and security features to those being issued in the UK and the other Crown Dependencies, but with clear branding for the Government of Guernsey as the issuing authority. This approach has been taken to ensure that the certificates issued for the Bailiwick of Guernsey are easily recognised and accepted when used for travel outside the Bailiwick and particularly outside the Common Travel Area (CTA).

However, Bailiwick of Guernsey residents wanting to travel internationally need to be aware that it cannot be guaranteed that Bailiwick-issued certification will be accepted when entering a specific country as it is at the discretion of the border control officer(s), and sometimes transport carriers dependent on the processes in place for checking proof of vaccination.
