Is anyone able to shed any light on the covid 19 pass all seems very confusing. Due to travel to the Canary Islands first week in August 🤞. I am fully vaccinated and had a booster mid November. The confusion lies in having had covid in February this year and the website mentions needing a covid recovery pass? Anyone travelled or due to travel who is able to clarify. Cheers 🍻

    If you are fully vaccinated then that's all you need to show - your COVID vaccination proof. 

    A COVID recovery pass is for those who aren't vaccinated but want to show they have already had it.

    I tested positive for Covid (using Lateral Flow Test kit) after a week in Mallorca in May.
    We had another 7 nights holiday (previously booked ) in Spain three weeks later - I was selected at random on entry at Malaga airport by the health checkers.
    They scrutinised my DCC Covid pass certificate, asked the airport we had flown from and waived me through in quick time - no dramas.
    Just make sure you have a paper copy of your DCC certificate.
