Coronavirus: Disease Control

Question for Department of Health and Social Care

UIN 118619, tabled on 4 February 2022

To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, whether a covid recovery pass can be obtained following registration of a positive lateral flow test.

Answered on

The NHS COVID Pass only uses positive National Health Service PCR test results to generate a recovery certificate for travel.

The NHS COVID Pass continues to develop in line with international standards and self-administered lateral flow device test results are not widely recognised for proof of COVID-19 recovery or test status for international travel.
