What is the EU Digital Covid-19 Certificate?
This document is being issued in your country and it’s valid in all the EU from July 1st. This document proves than you have been vaccinated, that you have had a recent negative Covid-19 test or that you have recovered from Covid-19. Every EU country sets up their own specifications for the certificate and for Belgium they are as follows:
- full vaccination (last dose + 2 weeks)
- a recent negative PCR test (< 72 hours)
- recovery certificate (valid for 180 days after a positive Covid-19 test)
