EU digital COVID test certificate

Expand all questions

The EU digital COVID test certificate allows people who have given a negative SARS- CoV-2 PCR test in Estonia to prove their infection risk status. It is possible to create a certificate about a PCR test done at a health care service provider in the Patient Portal www.digilugu.ee .

In order to participate in different activities that take place in a public space and are checked for COVID (including sports, entertainment, eating and drinking on the premises of a catering establishment etc.), the PCR test must be negative and done no more than 72 hours before participating in the activity.

In addition to a digital PCR test result, it is also possible to prove one's infection risk status with an antigen-RTD test done within 48 hours at a health care service provider, in order to participate in activities in Estonia. If they so wish, the person responsible for the activity (e.g. a concert organiser) may also offer an opportunity to test on the spot in accordance with the instructions of the Health Board. In order to participate in the activities, the rest result must be negative.

The EU digital COVID test certificate allows certifying the validity of the information sent by the health care worker to the health information system. The test certificate is based on the reply to the referral of a Sars-Cov-2 negative PCR test sent to the information system by a health care worker. Based on this a certificate that meets the European Union requirements is created. A person can create and use the certificate through the Patient Portal either as a printout or a digital document (this is a document in PDF format) to be shown in a smart device.

Upon logging into the Patient Portal (www.digilugu.ee), a person who has given a negative Sars-Cov-2 PCR test result can create a certificate for themselves or reproduce previously created valid certificates. A person can open and download the certificate at the Patient Portal. For a check, a person can present their negative PCR test result in a smart device or as a paper printout.

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.

The test certificate is not a basis for entering a country, it may be a basis for a country to release you from certain restrictions, e.g. self-isolation. The restrictions in the destination country must be taken into account when travelling. Additionally, the destination country's requirements for the time of doing the test must be considered.
