COVID-19 Vaccination Requirements

Several facilities used by the NDEB to run examinations have vaccine requirements that will apply to all examinees. Therefore, you will have to be vaccinated to write examinations at these centers. If you register to write an examination at a centre where vaccination is required, you must be prepared to provide proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 when you arrive at your test centre.
