How do I apply for a COVID recovery certificate?

Unfortunately, at the moment you are unable to hold both a vaccination and a recovery cert. However, this facility should become available on 27th January 2022, when you will be able to obtain both certificates in the app.

To apply for a recovery cert:

This is a two-step process. You must first create an account with NI Direct which will take you through identity verification. https://covidcertni.nidirect.gov.uk/Customer/CertificateDisplay/Home

Secondly, apply for a certificate using the link below;

If you are applying before the 27th Jan, when it asks if you are double vaccinated, please state ‘no’. It will give you an option to apply for a recovery cert.  This certificate is valid for domestic use in NI and international travel where your destination accepts recovery certification as part of their entry criteria.
