When you will get your Digital COVID Certificate
There are 4 types of Digital COVID Certificate:
Certificate based on vaccination
You can get this certificate if you have been vaccinated against COVID-19. If the HSE has a valid email address for you from the vaccination process – you will get your Digital COVID Certificate by email. Otherwise, you will get your certificate via post.
The Digital COVID Certificate will be in PDF format when emailed to you. You may download it to your phone, where the QR code on the PDF may be inspected or scanned.
These Digital COVID Certificates will be emailed or posted in the coming days.
Certificate based on recovery
A certificate of recovery will be available from 11 days after a positive test, and will be valid for no more than 180 days. You will be able to request this DCC via a helpline. Helpline details will be published shortly.
The number for the helpline is 1800-851504, and it is for queries relating to the vaccination certificates as well as for requesting recovery certificates.
Certificate based on negative RT-PCR test
You can obtain a RT-PCR test privately and a Digital COVID Certificate will be provided by the private RT-PCR testing service.
Certificate based on negative antigen test
You can obtain an antigen test privately in Ireland and a DCC will be provided by the private testing service. NOTE: A DCC based on an antigen test will not be accepted for entry to Ireland, but is acceptable in a number of other countries – find out more on the ReOpen EU website.
