The EU COVID Digital Certificate, also known as health passport, is a free and universal document that contains a QR code and allows free mobility in the European Union. In addition, in many places it is a necessary requirement to be able to access public spaces or certain establishments, such as bars, restaurants or nightclubs.
exist three types of covid certificates. On the one hand, the vaccination certificate, which is the one that certifies that you are vaccinated by one of the vaccines accepted by the European Union, which are Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, AstraZeneca or Jannsen. The certificate will indicate the number of doses you have and the date of vaccination.
Second, we have the negative test certificate, that is, the document that proves that you have done a PCR or an antigen test and they have given a negative result. In it, the date and time you took the test, the center where you took the test, and the result will appear.
And thirdly, the recovery certificate that shows that you have passed the covid-19. In it, the date on which you had a positive result of covid will appear, which is when you were infected, and the issuer of the certificate that certifies that you have overcome the virus and the dates.
All of them can be downloaded through the Electronic signature (with the electronic DNI, the BAKQ or Izenpe), through the option telematics without electronic signature (entering the number of TIS card, the date of birth and the first surname, or if you do not have a TIS card, with the DNI number) and finally, of face-to-face way. To do this, you must go to one of the three Zuzenean offices by appointment and request the certificate at this link.
