The EU Digital COVID Certificate acts as a COVID-19 passport, which can be downloaded from the Omakanta.fi online service. It includes evidence of coronavirus vaccination, a coronavirus test and any history of coronavirus disease. The certificate will appear in Omakanta within five days after receiving the vaccine.
How to get a coronavirus vaccination certificate (COVID-19 passport) from Omakanta:
- Log in to Omakanta.
- From the left-hand side menu, select COVID Certificate.
- Click the PDF link to open the COVID Certificate. If you have a certificate, it will open in a new tab.
- Save the PDF file on your phone. You can also print the certificate on paper.
If you cannot download or print the certificate from Kanta yourself, (you do not have banking codes or mobile ID) you can receive your COVID-19 certificate at pop-up service point in Kastelli (open daily from 9 a.m. to 12.00 and 12.30 p.m. to 2 p.m.). If you have banking codes but you do not know how to log in to Kanta-service, visit Immigration Info in Kastelli – we will help you!
If a child or young person over the age of 10 needs a COVID-19 passport and cannot download or print it from Omakanta, they can receive their COVID-19 passport from pop-up service point in Kastelli. The child or young person must either pick up the passport themselves or be together with a parent or guardian to pick up the passport. You should be prepared to prove your identity. If a parent or a guardian picks up the passport from Kastelli, they should show their identity card and the child’s Kela card. You can also ask your health center to send your child’s COVID passport home by post.
If you were vaccinated in another EU country, you should ask for the COVID passport in the country where you got vaccinated.
