What types of proof there are
Your COVID-19 digital certificate and immunisation history statement are proof of your COVID-19 vaccinations. They are both free.
You can print your own COVID-19 digital certificate or immunisation history statement when you download your proof online. You don't need to call for a copy.
There are 2 ways to show proof of your vaccinations:
- your COVID-19 digital certificate which shows proof of only your COVID-19 vaccinations that you can add to a digital wallet
- your immunisation history statement which lists your COVID-19 vaccinations and all other vaccinations.
Once you’ve had all your required doses, you can add your COVID-19 digital certificate to your digital wallet.
You can use our tool to find the best proof for your situation. It can depend on how many doses you’ve had.
Your vaccination provider needs to report your vaccination information to the Australian Immunisation Register (AIR) before it will appear on your statement. It can take your vaccination provider up to 10 days to update the AIR.
International COVID-19 Vaccination Certificate
The Australian Government has also announced the introduction of an upcoming internationally recognised International COVID-19 Vaccination Certificate. It’s part of the government’s framework for how international travel will look in coming months.
Read more about the announcement and the International COVID-19 Vaccination Certificate on the Prime Minister of Australia website.
Use your COVID-19 digital certificate to show proof of only your COVID-19 vaccinations. You can also add it to your digital wallet.
