Travelling to Dubai from Scotland

I am travelling to dubai in October. I've read up on everything I need to do however my question is how do I get my vaccine status uploaded onto the Dubai app, as in scotland we are given paper copies and not digital. Can Any Scottish people give me some advice who have travelled recently? Thanks in advance

As far as I can see Collette you don’t. I have looked through the app and all I have to do is scan my qr code once I have the results of my Pcr before I fly.

Scotland only have paper copies as you say so get ine and carry it with you.

I think they are looking into aligning us with the rest of the Uk and giving us a code for the app.

I am sure someone will correct me if inaccurate .

Thanks for replying. Yes from what I gathered I should just take the paper copy but a little cautious as I was reading that some countries won't accept paper copies so just need to hope for the best

Can you photograph the paper copy and upload it as a JPEG file ?

I’d still take the paper copy too though

Just for reference, the protocols from NCEMA in Dubai/UAE have always stipulated paper 'certificates' for PCR test results (even without elaboration or specification). That, and often folk in Dubai do love a good paper-shuffle and rustle, would make me recommend always having at least two paper copies of docs, as well as scanned.
