International COVID-19 Vaccination Certificates (ICVC) for Australians

From October 19, 2021, Australians have been able to access their International COVID-19 Vaccination Certificates (ICVC) through the MyGov website. These certificates, which have QR codes that can be scanned by foreign border authorities and are linked to your passport, provide proof that the holder has been vaccinated against COVID-19. They are also compatible with IATA's Travel Pass, used by more than 200 airlines around the world. Not all countries will require this proof, so it is strongly advised to check the smartraveller website for more information on the destination. Read more

The International Certificate of Vaccination or Prophylaxis (ICVP) used for required vaccinations, such as yellow fever, is not currently part of the official documentation for COVID-19 vaccines in Australia, however other pages of the 'yellow book' can be used to list COVID-19 vaccines for your own records. 

Smartraveller also has information for those people who received their COVID-19 vaccines overseas. Vaccination certificates obtained from other jurisdictions will need to fulfil certain criteria. Read more
