    Hi

    heading to London at the weekend - just wanted to check if the EU digital cert is valid in the UK. I can’t see clarification on this. Going to a show they refer to NHS covid certs.

    thanks,

    kevin

    Its entirely up to the show / venue. You need to ask them. There is no direct equivalance acceptance but many places do take them.

    The NHS system is England/Wales only for starters, Scotland has their own system and NI was a clusterfuck last time I checked but you could get our cert from there - so most venues accept other certs. But lots of football grounds are NHS England/Wales only, or antigen test in lieu.

    Went to a show last Thursday and asked for cert on way in. Irish/eu one fully accepted.

    Most large gatherings in England still require a cert or an antigen test. It's just normal pubs/clubs/restaurants that don't ask for anything

    I was at Frozen last week (for my sins), no cert check on entry. I can't actually remember the last time I was asked for it here - flight to Malta the week before is the only thing that comes to mind.
