Face Covering Exemption Card: Online Request Form

This Face Covering Exemption Card website is administered by Disability Equality Scotland on behalf of the Scottish Government. 

The Scottish Government mandate the wearing of face coverings in settings such as shops, transport, most indoor public places and communal areas in workplaces.  Exemption cards are available for people who are exempt from wearing face coverings in accordance with the Scottish Government guidance.  

Through this online request form, we will need to collect personal information to send either a physical or digital exemption card to you. Disability Equality Scotland has procedures to protect any personal information that you provide. The Privacy Policy can be read on our website. Disability Equality Scotland is compliant with General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in the processing and storage of your data.


Please note that due to extremely high demand for these exemption cards, physical cards will take a minimum of 14 days to arrive. We are doing all we can to deliver these cards as soon as possible. If you have submitted the request form below, rest assured that we have your details and an exemption card will be on its way to you soon.

Digital cards will take one working day to be delivered to your email address once processed. Please note that we are often unable to deliver digital cards to organisational email addresses due to server restrictions; to avoid this please use personal email addresses where possible.
 

1. Please confirm both statements below:

1) You have read and understood the Scottish Government guidance on face covering exemptions.
2) Yourself or the intended recipient of the card has an exemption as laid out in the Scottish Government guidance. *

 

2. Are you requesting a physical card (to be sent via post) or a digital card (to be emailed to a nominated email address)? If you would like both, please tick both.

Please note that due to unprecedented demand, there may be delays for the physical card. Please select 'Digital card' if possible to ensure your card reaches you as fast as it can. *

Please note that physical cards do not come with a lanyard.

 

4. If requesting a digital card, please input your nominated email address below. Please make sure all parts of the email address are spelled correctly (e.g. ".com", not ".con"), otherwise your card will not reach you.

Please note that digital cards may take up to 48 hours to be delivered via email, and you may need to check your spam/junk folder.

 

5. Do you give permission for Disability Equality Scotland to contact you in future regarding your experience of using the card? This survey is optional but will allow us to improve this service for future users. *
