How do I apply for an Exemption certificate?

Phone the COVID Certification Service helpline on 0300 200 7814, (available Monday to Friday 9am to 6pm & Saturday 9am – 1pm), select Option 5: Other Queries and say that you wish to apply for an Exemption certificate. Please note that the telephone service will be operating at reduced hours on public holidays.

The call handler will ask some questions. If you are eligible to apply for an Exemption certificate you will get an application form by post.

Return your application form to the relevant specialist clinician or GP stated on the form. You will get the results of your application by post two to three weeks after applying.

This certificate is only valid for domestic use in NI, not for international travel.
