So I currently have covid, confirmed by multiple LFT. I've registered the test etc and had a confirmation saying but on nhs app it says positive by LFT; will this be accepted as covid recovery confirmation. DH tested positive couple of months ago and he has one but his says PCR

I tested positive on an LFT and never had a recovery pass, my partner did, but he did a PCR test.

It probably depends on your vaccination status and country of destination whether you actually need a one.

@fruitandvegg I had my vaccination certificate, which made no mention of me having COVID, so had no problems. My partner's pass was on his vaccination certificate.

You can buy a covid recovery pass from private companies (will cost about £50) and most of them accept the NHS email that confirms positive LFT results. I'm not sure if I can mention the websites on here but just google them and the one we've used has 4.7 starts on trust pilot and lots of positive reviews of people saying they used them to travel to various countries. It lists the countries that they are accepted in.

^^This. Go privately.
You won't get a NHS Recovery pass (which is barcoded with your vaccination pass) without PCR confirmation.

If you're using it for travel, it will be easier and cheaper to do a pre-departure test anyway (unless your destination insists on a PCR rather than LFT test as you'll quite possibly fail the PCR if you're travelling soon).

Or just take a NHS PCR test now and that will trigger your Covid recovery pass (however, this isn't enough for some countries as they still insist on a signed doctor's letter for recovery rather than recognise the NHS pass).

Really? That can easily be faked.

I wonder whether other countries would accept private notes instead of official Government recovery passes...?
