COVID-19 certificate

5. COVID certificate for negative tested persons

As of 28th June, laboratories and testing centres will be able to issue certificates for unvaccinated persons who have tested negative for COVID-19 (PCR test or rapid antigenic test only).

1) PCR test

As of 28th June, persons who have tested negative for the PCR test will receive their COVID certificate directly from the laboratory via the "COVID Certificate" application. This channel will ensure that the COVID certificate is available as soon as possible and will be valid for 72 hours.

For people who do not have a mobile phone or access to digital tools, an alternative solution is being developed.


2) Rapid antigenic test

As of 30th June, following an antigenic test, COVID certificates can be issued and handed out on site in the testing facilities, i.e. in some pharmacies and in the testing centres. They will be valid for 24 hours.

No COVID certificates will be issued for self-tests.



The COVID certificate is personal. When checked, the certificate holder may be asked to prove his or her identity by means of an official identification document with a photo (e.g. an identity card). The information on the certificate - surname(s), first name(s), date of birth - should be identical to the information on the identity document.

Upon receipt of your certificate, please check that the data matches. If such is not the case, we invite you to report any necessary corrections to the authority issuing your certificate..
