EU digital COVID certificates

Expand all questions

In Estonia, the EU digital COVID recovery certificate is only issued based on a positive result of a PCR test done in Estonia.

  • If you have recovered from COVID in a European Union (EU) member state, then, based on the Digital COVID Certificate Regulation, the foreign country has the obligation to issue an EU digital recovery certificate regarding that, which can be used just as a certificate issued in Estonia.
  • If the EU country still refuses to issue a digital certificate, notify the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of this.
  • In addition to the European Union countries, several countries outside Europe have also joined the framework of digital certificates and are themselves issuing certificates that meet the same requirements. More information on the countries that have joined can be found on the web page ec.europa.eu.
  • Before taking a trip, make sure what the requirements are in a particular destination country and transit countries: rules for entering the country and for participating in controlled activities (e.g. restaurant, museum etc.) may be different. It would also be good to make sure beforehand whether the destination or a transit country has implemented a testing requirement. You can find a summary of the requirements applicable in other countries from reisitargalt.vm.ee (in Estonian).

Did this response answer your question?

No, you do not. It is not possible to issue an EU COVID certificate in Estonia based on vaccination that was done in another country.

  • If you have been vaccinated in another country, you can prove your vaccination status with an immunisation certificate received in that other country. Estonia recognizes all those vaccinations that are recognized by the person's country of departure (including, for instance, vaccination courses completed with Sputnik V, Sputnik Lite, Sinovac, Sinopharm etc.)

The certificate issued in another country must be in Latin or Slavic alphabet, in Estonian, Russian or English.

No COVID certificate automatically renews itself after getting the so-called third shot, i.e. an additional or a booster dose. After an additional dose, you can create the new certificate yourself at the Patient Portal digilugu.ee and start using it.

If the additional dose is your third dose:

  • In Estonia you can start using the certificate immediately on the same day. If a problem occurs with using the certificate in the country, e.g. an orange error code comes up when going to a cafe, as k the checker to use the Estonian checking application (kontroll.digilugu.ee).

If the additional dose is your second dose (e.g. you have previously been vaccinated with Janssen or have recovered from COVID-19 and received one dose of the vaccine):

  • The vaccination certificate will not be valid immediately. Depending on the vaccine, you can start to use the new certificate seven (Pfizer/BioNTech Comirnaty) or 14 (Moderna Spikevax) days after receiving the vaccine shot. Until then, you should use the previous valid COVID certificate.

Important: if the additional dose was your second dose and you created your certificate before February 1, 2022, you have to renew your certificate at the Patient Portal in order to receive a reference to the booster dose to it. Otherwise the checking applications could mistakenly consider the validity period of the certificate to be nine months instead of a year.

Using the additional and booster doses in other countries:

  • We recommend to initially take along both your previous and your new vaccination certificate when you go on a trip, as, depending on the country, a maximum protection waiting period of up to 14 days might apply after a third dose (even if this is a third dose). The old certificate does not become invalid when a new one is created but if you have created the certificate before October 20, 2021, we recommend creating and downloading that one again as well to make sure that foreign checking applications do not show an error notification.
  • Before going on a trip, make sure that your certificate meets the requirements of the destination and transit countries by using the Estonian checking application (after checking your certificate for the first time you can make sure that the certificate meets the requirements of other countries) and find out about other restrictions in force there as well. You can find the information from the web pages reisitargalt.vm.ee (in Estonian) and reopen.europa.eu.

Important: if you have created your vaccination certificate before October 20, 2021 and want to go on a trip, please renew it at the Patient Portal digilugu.ee, as its technical validity is about to run out. To do that, delete your old vaccination certificate and create a new certificate with the same data.

How to renew the certificate?

  1. Log into the Patient Portal digilugu.ee with an ID card, Mobile ID or Smart ID
  2. Press the green button "EU digital COVID certificates" on the left
  3. Press the button "Start the creation of an EU digital COVID certificate"
  4. Choose a certificate from the drop down menu on the page (EU digital COVID vaccination certificate) and push the button "Continue"
  5. Save or print the certificate. An expired certificate will be automatically replaced in Digilugu.

A person can check the validity of their own COVID certificate by going to the web address kontroll.digilugu.ee (in Estonian) and scanning the QR code on their certificate there.

Prior to a trip it is also possible to check on this web page whether the certificate meets the requirements of the destination country but only if the destination country has made their requirements available in the application.

Important! We recommend that everyone create a new vaccination certificates for travelling, as certificates created before October 21, 2021 are starting to lose their technical validity in December. This means that they are no longer valid upon crossing the border. A new certificate can be created in the Patient Portal digilugu.ee.

  • The recovery certificate is valid for 180 days starting from giving a positive Sars-CoV-2 PCR test result. It is not possible to extend the validity of the certificate.
  • The vaccination certificate can be used in Estonia for 365 days starting from the completion of the course of vaccinations; on the certificate, the completion of the course of vaccination is indicated with a note of one dose out of one (1/1), two doses out of two (2/2) or three doses out of three (3/3).

Important! Everyone who wants to go on a trip and has created their vaccination certificate before October 21, 2021 should create a new certificate with the same data at the Patient Portal (the earlier certificate needs to be deleted at digilugu.ee and then a new one should be created).

If a person does not have an Estonian personal identification code (e.g. foreigners, foreign students etc) but is vaccinated against COVID-19 or done a PCR test here, he can apply for the EU COVID certificate from the Social Insurance Board.

The certificate can be obtained by turning to the nearest service bureau of the Social Insurance Board (in Estonian) and presenting an identity document (preferably the same one that was used when getting the vaccination or doing the test).

The European Union (EU) digital COVID certificate allows persons who have been vaccinated against the coronavirus, given a negative test, or recovered from COVID-19 (according to a positive COVID-19 PCR test) in Estonia to prove that based on the information that is in the Patient Portal www.digilugu.ee.

The EU digital COVID certificate can be used in all European Union member states according to the requirements in force (e.g. to travel, to participate in activities, to eat on the spot at restaurants etc.).

It is possible to create the certificate in the Patient Portal for oneself: see the instructions (in Estonian).

Starting from the age of 12 years and three months it is obligatory to present a valid COVID certificate to participate in events taking place in checked public space (including entertainment, consuming on the premises in restaurants, cinema, events etc.) in Estonia. Young people in the age bracket of 12 years and three months to 17 years (included) can also participate with a certificate proving that they have done a negative test at a health care service provider. Both a PCR test done up to 72 hours earlier and an antigen-RTD test done up to 48 hours earlier are suitable, including a rapid antigen test for which a certificate has been issued, done in a general pharmacy. For adults, a negative test result is not sufficient as a COVID certificate. Those younger than 12 years and three months do not have to present a certificate or a negative test result.

Did this response answer your question?

The following rules are in force for different age groups:

Going to entertainment establishments (e.g. cinema, theatre), eating on the premises of catering establishments, participating in different events and participating in other such checked activities:

Children under the age of 12 years and three months:

  • There are no restrictions: it is not necessary to present a COVID certificate or a negative test result

Age 12 years and three months to 17 (included):

  • Children and adolescents who have been vaccinated, equated to vaccinated (e.g. recovered from the disease and vaccinated) or have recovered from COVID.19 may participate in checked activities
  • It is also possible to participate with a negative test result: suitable proofs are an antigen-RTD test (up to 48 hours earlier)or PCR test (up to 72 hours earlier) done at a health care service provider before participating in the activity or the antigen-RTD test meant for self-testing done at a general pharmacy (up to 48 hours earlier).

Age 18+:

  • Adults have to be vaccinated, equated to vaccinated or recovered from COVID-19 in order to participate in checked activities
  • A negative test result is not sufficient to participate

Sports, training, youth work, hobby activities and informal education, refresher training, participating in sports competitions, and curricular visits to museums and exhibition facilities:

Children under the age of 12 years and three months:

  • There are no restrictions: it is not necessary to present a COVID certificate or a negative test result

Age 12 years and three months to 18 (included) and young people turning 19 during the 2021/2022 academic year:

  • There is no obligation to present a COVID certificate or a negative test result if they are studying in a general education or vocational school and they are not symptomatic.

For instance, a 17-year-old student can thus participate in dance practice and go to a class trip to a museum without restrictions but needs to present either a valid COVID certificate or a negative test result certificate that meets the requirements to visit a cinema or a restaurant. An 18- or 19-year-old student can participate in football practice without having to present a certificate or a negative test result but can only visit a cinema or a restaurant with a valid COVID certificate (a negative test result is not sufficient as a certificate).

If a person cannot get vaccinated for medical reasons, i.e. vaccination is contraindicated to him (e.g. he has anaphylaxis or a strong allergic reaction to an ingredient of the vaccine, a previously occurred capillary leak syndrome etc.), they can use a certificate issued by a doctor to participate in activities. A contraindication to COVID-19 vaccination is established by a doctor who documents it with an international disease classification (ICD-10) code, on the basis of which she can issue a paper certificate.

It should be noted that it is only possible to use the abovementioned doctor's certificate to participate in activities within the country. In other countries you have to act according to the restrictions and requirements in force there. People who cannot get vaccinated for medical reasons are urgently recommended to also use personal protective equipment, e.g. a FFP2 or FFP3 respirator, while participating in activities, in order to reduce the infection risk.

It is not obligatory. The objective of a digital COVID certificate is to offer a solution that would allow people who have been vaccinated against the coronavirus in Estonia, given a negative test, or recovered from COVID-19 (according to a positive COVID-19 PCR test) to prove it based on the information that is in the Patient Portal www.digilugu.ee.

If it is not possible for a person to enter the Patient Portal and create the certificate at home for technical reasons or there is no possibility to print out the certificate, the person can turn to the local library, for instance. This does presume the existence of a working ID card and passwords. If necessary, the social worker of the local municipality can also assist the person.

If the obstacle turns out to be the expiration of the ID card passwords or the passwords are lost altogether, it is possible apply for a new username and password from the Police and Border Guard Board. This service costs 5 Euros.

Estonians and foreign nationals with an Estonian personal identification code who cannot create their own EU COVID certificates in the Patient Portal can submit an application for it at all the service bureaus of the Social Insurance Board.

People who are turning to the Social Insurance Board must have an Estonian personal identification code and an identity document in order to create the certificate. All who wish to get the certificate can fill out the application (DOCX) beforehand and print it out. The application must be taken to the suitable service bureau of the Social Insurance Board after which the EU COVID certificate will be sent to the person's e-mail address within three working days. Even though it is possible to create a vaccination certificate after only one dose, in order to participate in different events in Estonia, the course of vaccinations has to be completed. The service is free of charge to all.

Did this response answer your question?

Recovery from the disease is sufficient to prove one does not pose an infection risk if less than 180 days have passed since receiving a positive test result (PCR test). This means that a COVID-19 recovery certificate is valid for six months.

Once the recovery certificate is about to expire, it would be wise to get vaccinated: according to the calculations the member of the Scientific Council and the professor of Mathematical Statistics at the University of Tartu, Krista Fischer, did based on the infection indicators from July and August, those who have recovered from the disease and then gotten vaccinated have a 20 times smaller chance of getting infected again.

The recommendation is to vaccinate people who have recovered from the coronavirus with one dose on the sixth month after recovery. After this, the course of vaccination can be considered completed and a vaccination certificate becomes valid after maximum protection is achieved. The time that it takes to achieve maximum protection is different for different vaccines: Pfizer BioNTech Comirnaty 7 days after the second dose, Spikevax (Moderna) 14 days after the second dose, Vaxzevria (AstraZeneca) 15 days after the second dose, and Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) 14 days after the first dose.

It is worth noting that the status on the digital COVID certificates does not change automatically. The certificate has to be created again once the health care service provider has entered the new information to the Patient Portal digilugu.ee. If you have any questions about the information on the created COVID certificate, you can get assistance from the user support line of the Health and Welfare Information Systems Centre +372 794 3943 (from 7.00 to 22.00) or from the e-mail abi@tehik.ee.

Estonians and foreigners who have an Estonian personal identification code for whom it is not possible to log into the Patient Portal for technical reasons or who cannot create the EU COVID certificates in the Patient Portal, can submit an application for that in all service bureaus of the Social Insurance Board.

In order to create the certificate, the people who turn to the Social Insurance Board must have:

  • an Estonian personal identification code and an identification document
  • the vaccine must have been administered in Estonia

Everyone who wishes to receive a certificate can fill out an application (DOCX) in advance and print it out. An application that has either been filled out in advance or on the spot must be submitted to a suitable service bureau of the Social Insurance Board and an EU COVID certificate will be sent to the person's e-mail address within three working days from that. Even though a vaccination certificate can already be created after one vaccination, in order to participate in different events and activities in Estonia, the course of vaccinations has to be completed. The service is free of charge for everyone. More info from the web page of the Social Insurance Board.

If a person does not have the possibility to print out the certificate or display it from a smartphone, they also have the opportunity, for instance, to turn to the local library. This, however, requires a working ID card and PIN codes. If necessary, a person can also be assisted by the social worker of the local municipality.

If the PIN codes of the ID card are expired or lost, it is possible to apply for a new username and password from the service offices of the Police and Border Guard Board. The service costs 5 Euros.

There are two QR codes on each certificate for checking: one (smaller) takes to the web page that has been designated for verification, and the other (larger) QR code allows verifying that the data on the certificate is correct and authentic.

The certificates can be checked with the QR code scanning application on the web page kontroll.digilugu.ee (it is not possible to do this with regular QR code readers).

The solution makes it possible to evaluate the authenticity of the certificate and whether it meets the requirements currently in force in Estonia. Upon scanning, the person doing the check will be displayed three colours: green (the certificate is valid), orange (the information on the certificate does not meet the vaccination or recovery conditions in force in Estonia), and red (technical error of the certificate, the certificate is not valid).

The checking application shows whether:

  • the course of vaccination has been completed (1/1, 2/2 etc.)
  • at least 14 days have passed since the last vaccination, or at least 7 days if the vaccine used was the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine Comirnaty
  • up to one year has passed since the last vaccination
  • the sample for the PCR test with a negative result has been taken within the past 72 hours
  • the sample for the rapid test with a negative result has been taken within the past 48 hours
  • the sample of the PCR test with a positive result has been taken more than 11 days and no more than 180 days ago

The certificates have to be checked alongside an identity document to confirm the identity of the certificate holder.

If needed, the checking application can also be used to check whether your certificate meets the requirements in force in chosen other European Union member states.

No, they won't. In order to check the certificates, the European Commission created the necessary infrastructure (EU Gateway) through which the national systems are interfaced. Personal data (including health data) is not being exchanged across borders and these data are not being collected at the EU level. Personal data is contained only on the certificate that is being held by the person himself.

Last updated: 21.06.2021 14:49

Each digital COVID-19 certificate contains a digitally signed QR code that contains relevant information on the certificate. A digital signature is created with the signee's cryptographic private key and a trusted institution's (TEHIK - the Health and Welfare Information Systems Centre in Estonia) public key.

Each member state of the EU creates its own solution for checking the certificates, e.g. a web or mobile application through which it is possible to check the authenticity of the certificate in the destination country. When the owner of the certificate presents his certificate in some other member state, it is possible to check its authenticity, integrity and validity with a public key, as this key is being exchanged through a central gateway (EU Gateway) of the EU.

In Estonia, the web page kontroll.digilugu.ee has been created for that, allowing to check the authenticity of the certificate and whether it meets the requirements currently in force in Estonia. The person doing the check will be displayed three colours: green (the certificate is valid), orange (the information on the certificate does not meet the vaccination or recovery conditions in force in Estonia), and red (technical error and/or the certificate is not valid).

If needed, the checking application can also be used to check whether your certificate meets the requirements in force in chosen other European Union member states.

The certificate is not a basis for travelling to a foreign country but, depending on the requirements of the destination country, may release the traveller from restrictions that the country has enacted (e.g. self-isolation). The destination country's requirements for entry/determining isolation requirements should always be taken into account when travelling. Additionally, the restrictions that transport companies have set for their transit passengers should be taken into consideration. Information on the conditions for entry into other countries can be found on the Reisi Targalt web page (in Estonian) of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Before going on a trip you should get to know the requirements of the destination country for entering the country and getting a release from the isolation requirement. Additionally, the restrictions that transport companies set for their transit passengers should be taken into consideration.

It should be kept in mind that even though the immunisation certificate can be created immediately after immunisation with the first dose, one dose of the vaccine (for two-dose vaccines) might not bring about the desired exceptions and releases at the destination country.

Additionally, it should be ascertained what the destination country's rules are for the immunity created by vaccination, i.e. when the destination country considers the course of vaccination is completed or the immunity achieved. For instance, there might be a situation where a certain number of days must have passed from getting the second dose of a two-dose vaccine in order to get a release from self-isolation. It should also be considered that the approach to a negative test result might differ in countries.

The COVID certificate is obligatory (starting from the age of 12 years and three months)

Before the start of the event or the activity it is obligatory for all the people starting from the age of 12 years and three months to present a valid COVID certificate. The event may be attended by people who

  • have completed the course of vaccinations within the past year (or have completed the course of vaccinations and received an additional dose)
  • have recovered from COVID-19 and no more than six months (180 days) have passed since the moment the diagnosis was confirmed
  • cannot get vaccinated for health reasons, if they present a certificate stating that fact, issued by a doctor.

Young people in the age bracket of 12 years and three months to 17 years (included) may also participate in events with a certificate proving that they have done a test with a negative result at a health care service provider. Both a PCR test done up to 72 hours earlier and an antigen-RTD test done up to 48 hours earlier are suitable, as well as a rapid antigen test for which a certificate has been issued, done at a general pharmacy. For adults (18+), a negative test result is not sufficient as a COVID certificate.

The organisers have an obligation to check the validity of COVID certificates alongside an identity document of the person presenting the certificate. Certificates that have a QR code must be checked digitally to make sure that they are authentic.

The access of unvaccinated people to events and activities is limited because their risk of getting infected is very high and if they are infected, they spread the virus more than people who have immune protection; they also have a higher risk of suffering from the disease more severely and ending up in a hospital.

A protective mask is obligatory

Children who are 12 years of age and older have to wear a protective mask in public indoor spaces (including rooms where the COVID certificate is checked, e.g. entertainment venues, events, cinemas, theatres). A preference is given to a medical mask or a mask equated to that (e.g. a FFP1-3 mask or a N95 respirator), which effectively stops the transmission of the delta strain of the coronavirus. A scarf, a tube scarf, a collar, a visor, or any other object that has clearly not been meant to be used as a protective mask do not count as a mask. If a person cannot wear a mask for health reasons, he must present a certificate proving the contraindication, issued by a health care service provider.

Wearing a mask is generally the responsibility of each individual themselves but in public indoor spaces the persons responsible for the activity must also monitor that the obligation to wear a mask is adhered to.

Limitations to the number of participants

Up to 1000 people may participate in events and activities indoors and up to 2000 people outdoors.

Events must end no later than at 23.00 (the restriction is temporarily suspended between December 31, 2021 and the morning of January 2, 2022)

The venues of public events (including entertainment venues, cinemas, theatres) are subject to an opening hours restriction between the hours of 23.00 and 06.00. The person responsible for the activities must ensure that between the hours of 23.00 and 06.00 the only people present in the room for an extended period are the owner of the location of activities or his representative, the employees, and people connected to performing emergency tasks.

Requirements for the employees

In employment relationships, the basis for going to work, the requirements regarding the use of personal protective equipment and other measures aimed at controlling the spread of the virus (including presenting COVID certificates, testing, wearing a mask etc.) is the working environment risk analysis conducted by the employer. For instance, employees are released from the obligation to wear a mask if the employer's risk analysis of the specific working environment has foreseen stopping the spread of the coronavirus in some other way.

Interim legal protection applies only to those persons who have received it in a particular court action. People who have received interim legal protection by a decision of a court have to prove it by presenting a valid court order.

Other additional requirements may apply, depending on the particular interim legal protection.

A COVID certificate is obligatory starting from the age of 12 years and three months

Young people starting from the age of 12 years and three months have to present a certificate that they have either:

  • completed the course of vaccinations, received an additional dose, or recovered from the disease and received one dose of the vaccine no more than a year ago or
  • recovered from COVID-19 and no more than six months (180 days) have passed since the diagnosis was confirmed or
  • up to 17-year-olds (included) can participate at the event with a negative test result as well. Suitable proofs are a PCR test done up to 72 hours earlier or an antigen-RTD test done up to 48 hours earlier at a health care service provider, or a rapid test done at a pharmacy, for which a certificate has been issued. For adults (18-year-olds and older), a negative test result is not sufficient to be able to participate.

If a person cannot get vaccinated for health reasons, it is possible for him to participate at the event with a corresponding medical certificate as well.

Those younger than 12 years and three months do not have to present any COVID certificates or negative test results.

An event is to be attended only when healthy. People who are sick, symptomatic, or in simplified quarantine have to stay home.

An exception: children and youths who are in the age bracket of 12 years and three months to 18 years or turning 19 during the 2021/2022 academic year do not have to present a COVID certificate or a negative test result in informal education and hobby activities, youth work, refresher training, to do sports, train, and compete at sports competitions, provided that they are asymptomatic and studying at a general education or vocational school, as young people are tested several times a week at screening tests taking place in schools. They also do not have to present a certificate or a negative test result if they are visiting a museum or an exhibition as a curricular activity and only students from one class or group are participating in it.

A protective mask is obligatory

Children 12 years of age and older have to wear a protective mask in public indoor spaces, except in cases where the activity does not allow this (e.g. in doing direct sports, when coming in contact with water, during eating and drinking etc). A preference is given to a medical mask or a mask equated to that (e.g. a FFP1-3 mask or a N95 respirator) which effectively keeps the delta strain of the coronavirus from spreading. A scarf, a tube scarf, a collar, a visor or any other object clearly not meant to be used as a protective mask do not count as a mask.
