How long is my corona certificate valid for?
For international travel, showing a coronavirus entry pass is required in some countries. The following validities apply:
- A recovery certificate becomes valid 11 days after the positive test, until 180 days after the positive test.
- A vaccination certificate will be handed out after one vaccination. A full vaccination certificate in general is valid for 270 days. Are you under 18 years old? Then different rules apply to the validity of your vaccination certificate. Check Requirements and validity proof of vaccination.
Please note: the QR codes of all your vaccinations always remain visible in the CoronaCheck-app, even after the 270 days. This is done because it varies by country how long a vaccination is valid and of which vaccination you have to show the QR code. Once you’ve received a new (booster)vaccination, you can add it yourself by logging in again with DigiD. A decision about the validity of booster vaccinations has not been made yet.
- The validity of test certificates differs per country.
Please note: Rules and regulations differ per country. Check Netherlands Worldwide before you leave to see what certificate you need and if your international certificate is valid at your destination.
