EU Digital COVID Certificate Acceptance Period
Acceptance period of 270 days for vaccination certificates starts tomorrow.
As of tomorrow, 1 February, the new rules start applying on a standard acceptance period of 270 days for EU Digital COVID vaccination certificates used for travel within the EU. In line with the new rules, set out in the Commission’s Delegated Act of 21 December 2021, Member States must accept vaccination certificates for a period of 270 days (9 months) since the completion of the primary vaccination series.
For a single-dose vaccine, this means 270 days from the first and only shot. For a two-dose vaccine, it means 270 days from the second shot or, in line with the national vaccination strategy, the first and only shot after having recovered from the virus. Member States should not provide for a different acceptance period for the purposes of travel within the European Union. The standard acceptance period does not apply to certificates for booster doses.
PLEASE NOTE THIS DOES NOT AFFECT THE RULES FOR TRAVELLERS ARRIVING INTO PORTUGAL. A NEGATIVE TEST IS STILL REQUIRED OR RECOVERY CERTIFICATE.
