Who can use Digital Certificate? What is it for? here are the answers

O Digital Certificate comes into effect from July 1st in the European Union, but there are still doubts that may hover in the minds of the Portuguese. As such, the Government resorted to Twitter to explain “all the advantages” of it.

Who can use it?

  • Vaccination: “Who has a complete vaccination schedule for more than 14 days”;
  • Recovery: “Who recovered from Covid-19 in the last six months”;
  • Test: “Who has a negative result in the last 72 (PCR) or 48 hours (antigen)”.

And what is it for? The Government explains that it will be used for “travel within the European Union”, “circulation within national territory”, “access to some cultural and sporting events” – (indoor: +500 people; outdoor: +1000 people) – and ” access to family events”, such as weddings and baptisms with more than ten people.

How to get?

  • Issue from the SNS24 Portal;
  • Presentation in digital or paper format.

After validation of the order, the document is made available on the portal or can be sent later to an indicated email, without any associated costs.

Since June 16, it is possible to request this certificate through the SNS 24 portal, which proves that your carrier has had a negative Covid-19 screening test, has completed vaccination, or has recovered from the infection.

Remember that the President of the Republic promulgated this Thursday the diploma that implements, in Portugal, the European regulation on the Covid-19 digital certificate, as well as the decree that extends the exceptional recruitment regime for the National Health Service.

The head of state recalled that this digital certificate will allow free circulation in the EU “of those who hold it, but also on national territory, both free movement, regardless of the validity of restrictive rules, as well as access to cultural, sporting, corporate or family events“.
