The NHS Covid pass app has gone down this afternoon meaning travellers will not be allowed to leave the UK.
British holidaymakers will not be able to access the Covid pass app on their smartphones as users are receiving an error message saying that high volumes traffic is “limiting access to the service.”
NHS Digital have acknowledged the issue and said they are investigating and promised an update “as soon as we can.”
There are currently issues with accessing the Covid Pass on the NHS App and website. We are investigating the issue and will update as soon as we can.
