2D bar codes are available for fully vaccinated Bailiwick of Guernsey residents as part of their digital vaccination certification.

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.

Vaccination 2D bar codes

Update 15 December 2021

As of Thursday 16 December 2021, the 2D bar code digital vaccination certificate, available to Bailiwick residents through the Travel Tracker, will include information on their booster.


Digital vaccination 2D bar codes have launched for fully vaccinated people in the Bailiwick of Guernsey. 

The codes are available through Travel Tracker accounts and can be accessed by logging into your account (or creating an account if you do not already have one) and selecting your COVID-19 Status Certificate. The 2D bar code will come up automatically when you do this.

Once a Travel Tracker account is logged onto it brings up a 2D barcode, which is valid for 30 days. This will automatically refresh online, when logging into the Travel Tracker account. The number of remaining days are shown at the top of the code. If people are away from the island or offline when it expires they will need to connect to wi-fi or data in order for the 2D barcode to update online.

Please note: If you print out the 2D barcode or save the 2D barcode as a PDF this code will expire 30 days from when it was generated. For this reason it is advised that people travelling who print out their code are mindful of the 30 day expiration. The 30 day validity is directed by the UK who are the issuing authority for Guernsey 2D bar codes and is designed to protect your personal data.
