Finland going to issue EU Digital COVID-19 passports

 Friday, June 25, 2021 


Finland is now going to issue EU Digital COVID-19 passports . As most European countries have already started to issue vaccination passports weeks ahead of the deadline, Finland began the process just now. As a result, since yesterday, June 22, the COVID-19 Vaccination Certificate of Finland has been updated to be compatible with the ones issued by the European Union.

More specifically, this means that the vaccination passports approved by the EU are now available to Finnish residents through the online health portal known as Omakanta, reports.

According to the Ministry of Social Affairs and Health, there may be delays between the vaccination date(s) and when such information will be made available in the Omakanta system. However, it was emphasised that the vaccination information will appear in the system no later than five days after vaccination.

On the other hand, the information regarding the COVID-19 test result certificates will be available in the system from July.

The certificates will be free of charge to all residents of Finland and will be available in Finnish, Swedish, and English.
