Take note – story published 2 years ago

Starting Tuesday, June 1st, Latvian residents are able to obtain a digital certificate attesting to the fact of vaccination against Covid-19 or having had the disease. Disruptions to the system are expected on the first day as glitches continue to be ironed out.

Digital Covid-19 certificates and obtaining them

From June 1, three types of digital certificates will be available: a certificate attesting to vaccination; a certificate of having had and recovered from Covid-19 infection; and a certificate of a negative Covid-19 test.

As of 9:30 June 1, LSM observed the site had started working. In the first few hours, the site had 900 visitors per minute, according to National Health Service (NVD).

To download or print a certificate for yourself:

  • click on the “View my certificates” (Apskatīt savus sertifikātus) button on the website;
  • authenticate with one of the means of safe access (Internet bank, eID card, mobile ID);
  • request and view certificates in the system;
  • select the certificate you want and download or print it.

The certificate will take the form of a QR code to be installed on a smart device, or a printed document, said National Health Service director Āris Kasparāns.

The certificate will be used to access and provide services as of June 1, events and venues from June 15, and hockey games.

People who do not have access to Internet or any of the authentication tools valid on the website will not yet be able to receive their certificate. These people must wait until June 15, when the service will be offered in the joint network of state and local government customer service.

In case a vaccinated person does not see their certificate in the system, they are asked to contact the National Health Service (NVD) or the establishment which carried out their vaccination.
