France, Italy, Netherlands - Specific Rules
France only accept the NHS Recovery Certificate / pass. They do not currently accept recovery certificates from other UK medical services. Our QR code can not be uploaded to France's own specific Covid App.
Italy accept our recovery certificate for travelling across borders and passport control & at check-in desks. They do not upload to the EU digital app and do not work in the same way as an EU digital green pass. They may be able to be converted into the green pass in Italy within pharmacies/healthcare facilities - but this appears location dependent. This is the case for all private UK recovery certificates.
Netherlands accept recovery certificates for entry although we are aware that some airlines are only accepting NHS recovery certificates & not those from private healthcare providers.
Always check your destination countries up to date rules regarding recovery certificates, prior to travel.
Spain & the Canary Islands Accept Recovery Certificates
