European Digital Covid Certificate

The Belgian authorities can issue a European Digital Covid Certificate to people who received a vaccination outside Belgium, under specific conditions. Your vaccination record has to get uploaded onto Vaccinet first and the certificate can be issued based on the data that are available in Vaccinnet.

These are the conditions for obtaining a European Digital COVID Certificate:

A. Vaccination outside Belgium can be registered in Vaccinet on these 3 conditions:

  1. The administered vaccine is a vaccine that is authorized by the European Medicines Agency (EMA), or Covishield. Comirnaty, the BioNTech vaccine that is administered in Hong Kong, has been authorized by the EMA. Click here for the complete list of approived vaccines

    • studies or works in Belgium 
  3. The vaccinated person can present a valid proof of vaccination showing the name of the vaccine, the dose, and the date when it was administered. This is the case for the vaccination certificates issued in Hong Kong.
