Covid-19 certificate

The EU Covid-19 certificate which can be found in the MyKanta service is used as a traveling document.

The EU Covid-19 vaccination certificate has been available in the MyKanta service since June 2021. From mid-July the EU Covid-19 certificate has included in addition to a vaccination certificate a certificate of a negative Covid-19 test result and of a recovery from Covid-19 disease, if it has been confirmed with a positive PCR test result.

The requirements for a Covid-19 certificate may differ between countries, and a traveler must find out about the destination country’s requirements before travelling for example from the European Union's Re-open EU website. It’s also important to check the Covid-19 situation of the destination country, as well as the current instructions regarding Covid-19.

The Covid-19 vaccination certificate is valid for 9 months after a second vaccination, but after a third vaccination the validity is unlimited. According to the EC recommendation the test result certificate is valid for at least 72 hours after PCR testing and for at least 48 hours after a quick test. According to the recommendation the certificate of a recovery from Covid-19 disease is valid at the earliest 11 days after a positive Covid-19 test result and at maximum 180 days after a positive Covid-19 test result.
