How to use your NHS Covid Pass as a Green Pass in Italy

Your NHS Covid pass can be used in Italy as a Green Pass to gain entrance to indoor dining, museums, cultural venues and archaeological sites as well as cinemas, theatres, cultural events and concerts. 

1. Download the GreenPass Italia App:

Available for iOS and Android.

2. Request a digital NHS Covid pass (the PDF version not the paper letter).

3. Scan the QR code 2 of 2 (3 of 3 if boosted) into the Green pass app. 

Select the (+) symbol at the bottom, then "Scansiona" and point your phone at the QR code. 
Options include:
  • Print the PDF and scan the printout.
  • Get a friend to photograph your screen then scan their photo.
  • Take a screen shot, crop it, select "Carica" instead of "Scansiona" and import from your photo library.
Warning: check the NHS Covid pass expiry date as this is carried forward into the app. If necessary delete and repeat steps 2 and 3 to refresh. 

4. Venues will use the VerificaC19 App to check your Green Pass.
  • You can also download the VerificaC19 App to check that your own QR code, or other's, is valid.
  • You need the PDF version of the NHS pass because the postal version does not have a QR code.
  • You must use the most recent dose QR code, 2 of 2 (3 of 3 if boosted)! Dose 1 of 2 is not valid.
  • You can scan the QR code into GreenPass from a screen.
  • You can scan several people's codes into one phone.
  • You can scan in from one phone to another. Handy if there are two of you because you can scan each other's into their app then back to the other phone.
  • You can choose which is the main code if there are several on a phone by selecting it and clicking "Fissa".
You're welcome!
