How to Provide Proof of COVID-19 Vaccination On-Site
An EU Digital COVID Certificate or comparable proof of vaccination in digital or paper form in German, English, French, Italian or Spanish must be presented. Photographs of physical proof cannot be accepted as digital proof. Proof in digital form needs to have been issued electronically by the authorised issuer and transmitted electronically to the authorised holder.
Vaccination certificates must clearly state the following:
- The personal data of the vaccinated person (at least surname, first name and date of birth)
- Date of vaccination, number of vaccinations
- Vaccine name
- Name of the disease vaccinated against
- Characteristics that indicate the person or institution responsible for carrying out the vaccination or issuing the certificate, for example an official symbol or the name of the issuer
How to Provide Proof of Recovery On-Site
Digital & paper form versions are acceptable. You can use the following documents as proof:
- Certificate of recovery
- PCR result from a laboratory, doctor or testing centre
Your proof document must show that your infection was confirmed by PCR testing. Furthermore, in addition to the test/reporting date, it must be clearly evident to which person the document was issued.
Important: buying, selling or using a fraudulent vaccination or recovery card is a criminal offence.
