The EU Digital COVID Certificate Regulation entered into application on 01 July 2021. EU citizens and residents will now be able to have their Digital COVID Certificates issued and verified across the EU.
An EU Digital COVID Certificate is a digital proof that a person has either:
- been vaccinated against COVID-19
- received a negative test result or
- recovered from COVID-19
The EU Digital COVID Certificate will be accepted in all EU Member States. It will help to ensure that restrictions currently in place can be lifted in a coordinated manner.
When travelling, the EU Digital COVID Certificate holder should in principle be exempted from free movement restrictions: Member States should refrain from imposing additional travel restrictions on the holders of an EU Digital COVID Certificate, unless they are necessary and proportionate to safeguard public health.
I've been vaccinated, how do I get my cert?
If the HSE has a valid email address for you from the vaccination process – you will get your Digital COVID Certificate by email. Otherwise, you will get your certificate via post.
