4. I have had COVID-19 within the past six months, or I have been vaccinated against COVID-19. How can I prove this at the border?
In order to prove that you have had COVID-19, please print out the respective referral response or patient’s summary from the digilugu.ee portal. A positive PCR test result must be presented in order to prove that you have had the disease. A positive antibody test result is not considered as being sufficient proof.
If you were ill and have recovered outside of Estonia, you must present a respective officially-verified certificate or an extract from a medical record in Estonian, Russian, or English, and in the Latin or Cyrillic alphabet.
The document must include the following information:
- the patient’s personal details;
- the method of analysis used;
- the result of the analysis;
- the place and time at which the test was taken;
- the name and other details of the individual who carried out the test.
All vaccinations are documented digitally, as well as on paper in the immunisation passport, if the patient so wishes. There are several options when it comes to proving that you have been vaccinated:
- a printout of the immunisation passport from the digilugu.ee portal;
- a paper copy of the immunisation passport, which is issued by the healthcare professional who carried out the vaccination procedure;
- vaccinations which have been performed outside of Estonia can be proven by presenting the original immunisation passport, a copy of that passport, a printout of the respective certificate, or an extract from the respective database.
The document which proves vaccination outside of Estonia must be drawn up in Estonia, Russian, or English and in the Latin or Cyrillic alphabet, and must include the following information:
- the personal details of the vaccinated individual (including first name and surname);
- the vaccination dates;
- the name of the vaccine administered and the dosage;
- the number from the vaccine batch;
- the number of vaccine doses administered;
- the name and other details of the individual who carried out the vaccination procedure.
