Which? comments on holidaymakers being able to use the NHS app to show their vaccine status

Rory Boland, Editor of Which? Travel, said:

“Steps to simplify the process of proving your vaccine status will remove some of the admin involved before travelling and should reduce test costs, with some destinations removing the need for a pre-departure test if passengers can provide proof of vaccination.

“Travellers do need urgent and concrete assurances from the government as to whether this form of proof will be accepted by green list countries. With travel due to restart imminently, many will plan to provide vaccination status rather than a test to travel and they risk being turned away from the flight and holiday if the NHS app is not accepted by a destination country.”
