What is the EU Digital COVID Certificate?

An EU digital COVID Certificate is a digital proof that a person has either

  • reccovered from COVID-19

Key features of the certificate

  • Digital and/or paper format
  • With QR code
  • Free of charge
  • In national language and English
  • Safe and secure
  • Valid in all EU countries

How can citizens get the certificate?

  • National authorities are in charge of issuing the certificate. It could, for example, be issued by test centres or health authorities, or directly via an eHealth portal. Information on how to get the certificate should be provided by the national health authorities. 
  • The digital version can be stored on a mobile device. Citizens can also request a paper version. Both will have a QR code that contains essential information, as well as a digital signature to make sure the certificate is authentic.
  • Member States have agreed on a common design that can be used for the electronic and paper versions to facilitate the recognition.
