Greece activated on Tuesday, June 1, the online platform for the EU Digital Green Certificate Covid-19 where citizens can obtain a confirmation that they have been either vaccinated against the coronavirus or have been tested negative with PCR test or they have recovered from Covid-19.
The aim of the Certificate Covid-19 is to facilitate the safe free movement of citizens within the EU during the pandemic. Before the Certificate is activated by all EU member states on July 1, it could be used between a few countries like Germany, Greece, Denmark, Croatia, Poland, Bulgaria and the Czech Republic in June on pilot program basis.
Greek citizens can obtain the official website gov.gr and issue the green pass using their personal passwords to Taxisnet and their social security number AMKA. The certificate can be printed or be in digital form with QR code.
Greece is part of the first wave of countries that activate the European Covid Certificate from Tuesday, Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said adding that ‘it declares our readiness for a safer and freer summer.”
He stressed that “Greece is at the forefront of this important digital tool.”
KTG would appreciate feedback by foreign nationals who live in Greece, whether they were able to obtain the EU Digital Certificate.
