You can now request vaccination status certificates through My Covid Record. You can still request written confirmation of your COVID-19 vaccinations as part of a Privacy Act request.

Through the My Covid Record website, you can now request two free official records of your COVID-19 vaccination status.
- My Vaccine Pass for use in Aotearoa New Zealand.
- International Travel Vaccination Certificate for overseas travel (this has details of all the COVID-19 vaccinations you’ve had administered in New Zealand).
These are the official forms of proof of vaccination for these purposes.
If you’ve already received a vaccination confirmation letter you can still use this for international travel, but we recommend you request an International Travel Vaccination Certificate through My Covid Record to ensure the country you are travelling to recognises your proof of vaccination status.
For access into venues later in the year, you will need to request a My Vaccine Pass. My Vaccine Passes include a QR code which you will need to scan for access to certain venues and events. Your letter will not gain you access.
You can request confirmation of your personal information and your COVID-19 vaccination record as held in the COVID Immunisation Register (CIR) by making a request under the Privacy Act.
This will include:
- your name
- your date of birth
- the name of the vaccine you had
- the number of doses you’ve received and dates they were administered.
