My Vaccine Pass is an official record of your COVID-19 vaccination status for use within Aotearoa.
Anyone aged 12 and over who has had two COVID-19 vaccinations administered in New Zealand, or who has been given a medical exemption, can now request a My Vaccine Pass.
Your My Vaccine Pass will include your name, date of birth and a QR code. You can save this pass on a digital device, like your phone, or print a physical copy.
My Vaccine Pass is a record of your COVID-19 vaccination that you might be asked to show within New Zealand.
While there is no legal requirement for businesses to use My Vaccine Pass, some may choose to ask for them as a condition of entry.
You can get an updated My Vaccine Pass if you are aged 12 or over and are up to date with your COVID-19 vaccination or have a temporary medical exemption.
My Vaccine Passes are not required or available for children aged 5 to 11.
It is valid for 6 months.
You will need to apply to the Ministry of Health to have your vaccination record from overseas added to New Zealand’s COVID Immunisation Register (CIR). You need to do this before you can get My Vaccine Pass.
