What documents are accepted as proof of vaccination?


Acceptable Proof of Vaccination

We will ask that you disclose your vaccination status before boarding (via the Royal Caribbean app, website, or at the terminal). Fully vaccinated guests should bring their vaccination record in case local businesses or authorities ask to see it for entrance. Local authorities will accept one of three forms of documentation:  

1. The physical vaccination record issued by the country’s health authority that administered the vaccination (e.g., U.S. CDC’s Vaccination Record Card). Royal Caribbean will accept an original vaccine card that has been laminated.

2. Electronic vaccination records where country policy requires the use of electronic documentation via app or health agency site (e.g. UK NHS App, NHS Certificate, Israel Green Pass, EU Digital COVID Certificate)

3. A letter from the guest’s medical provider that administered the vaccination, which meets the following criteria: 

  • The Proof of Vaccination must include the name of the vaccinated person matching the registered cruise guest with date of birth (DoB), the dates of the completed vaccination cycle, the administering physical or medical services provider, and the manufacturer of the vaccine issued. 
  • The full vaccination cycle must be completed be completed at least 14 days before your sail date (e.g., received the second dose in a two-dose series such as Pfizer or Moderna or a single dose of J&J). 
  • The vaccine is recognized and approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (U.S. FDA) and/or the World Health Organization (WHO).

We recommend all vaccinated guests travel with one of these at all times whenever going ashore in public ports, as local authorities and businesses in some countries may require proof of vaccination to enter. 


Fraudulent Documentation of Vaccination

In some ports, guest may need to provide documentation of vaccination to immigration, health and port authorities. Falsifying documentation of vaccination may lead to criminal prosecution in various jurisdictions. We reserve the right to remove from the ship any guest whom has submitted a falsified vaccination document to local authorities. 

We further reserve the right to bring a civil action against any guest who falsely attests to their vaccination status to recover all costs and damages caused by such fraudulent conduct.
