A valid vaccination or recovery certificate is not a basis for travelling abroad. The requirements of the destination country for entering, the conditions for the self-isolation obligation, and restrictions in force on the spot need to be taken into account when travelling. Information on the conditions for entry into other countries can be found on the Reisi Targalt website (in Estonian).

Depending on the requirements of the destination country, a COVID certificate may offer an exemption from certain restrictions that the country has enacted (e.g. self-isolation, entry to museums and entertainment venues etc.).

No, you are not. Testing with a family doctor's referral is aimed only at symptomatic persons. It is necessary for the quick identification and isolating of infected persons, in order to limit further spread of the virus. Doing a test with a family doctor's referral or as a close contact is free for an individual and the costs of the test are covered by the state.

A paid test necessary for travelling can be done at a service provider convenient for you. More information about the service providers can be found here: https://koroonatestimine.ee/en/for-patients/paid-testing/

It is possible to check on the border whether the passenger has paid for the test himself or used a family doctor's referral. An order number is automatically displayed on the certificate necessary for travelling.

If you are going on holiday, you should take your European Health Insurance Card with you, as it is important if you have a health problem abroad. People from Estonia who have the European Health Insurance Card can get the medical help they need in the European Union and also in Liechtenstein, Norway, Iceland and Switzerland on the same terms as insured people who live in those countries.

The card can be ordered digitally from the state portal eesti.ee and is free of charge.

To get medical treatment, you should present your European Health Insurance Card or a replacement certificate for it and an identity document at a medical institution. The card only entitles you to medical assistance at public healthcare institutions.

NB! Please note that the European Health Insurance Card does not necessarily cover all the costs of the medical care you need. You must pay yourself for visitation fees, bed fees, co-payments for medicines, translation costs, etc at the prices of the country you are in. The card does not cover the cost of international transport or the costs of a private doctor. We recommend that when you travel you should sign a travel insurance contract with an insurance company to cover your costs, depending on the insurance conditions.
