COVID recovery certificate

​Who can get a COVID recovery certificate

From 31 January 2023, the Government of Jersey will no longer issue recovery certificates for the purposes of international travel. However, previously issued certificates remain valid for a period of 180 days.

Information included on your certificate

Your COVID recovery certificate proves that you have recovered from COVID-19 following a positive PCR test. It includes a QR code and has been formatted in accordance with UK and EU-DCC specifications.

It is valid from 11 days until 180 days after the date of your first positive PCR test. The expiry date on this certificate cannot be extended.

You can show your COVID recovery certificate when travelling abroad. For the purposes of travel during this period, you are considered to have natural immunity to COVID-19. However, you are still at risk of re-infection, and should continue to follow local and national public health guidance to protect yourself and others.

COVID Status Certification

COVID Status Certification (CSC) is the process so you can prove you have:

  • completed a COVID-19 vaccination course
  • are recently recovered from a previous infection with COVID-19
  • had a recent negative COVID-19 test from a private provider

This proof can be used national and internationally to participate in domestic or border COVID Status Certificate schemes. 

The Government of Jersey works closely with the UK Government and other international partners to make sure that the evidence provided in Jersey is internationally accepted and remains compatible with any developing systems.


You can show your paper or digital certificates when travelling abroad.

Make sure you:

  • check the entry requirements for your destination country on the GOV.UK foreign travel advice pages
  • get up to date information from the website of your destination country
  • confirm with your destination country that they will accept your Jersey COVID Status Certificate
