Is your test result certificate or QR code compatible with foreign apps?
The QR code on your result certificate is a C19 Testing specific anti-fraud feature that enables confirmation of the test result details by scanning the QR code with a compatible device (such as a smartphone).
This QR code has not been created to be compatible with the Covid apps of individual foreign countries e.g. The French 'Tous Anti Covid' app or the Italian 'Green Pass' app. This means it should be treated in the same way as a certificate that does not have a QR code if it is uploaded into an app that looks for specific QR code characteristics.
Similarly, your result certificate is not an EU digital covid certificate and does not contain EU digital covid certificate features. The UK is no longer in the EU and is not part of this programme.
Our result certificate can be used for outbound travel to the vast majority of countries. Please check the eligibility requirements of the Covid app of your destination country to confirm what types of test result proof they require for evidence of your test status after arrival, and to confirm whether specific features must be included within these. You can download a copy of our result certificate from our website.
