Key Points

Vaccinated travelers or travelers who have recovered from COVID-19 will be exempt from testing and quarantine entrance requirements, regardless of nationality or the country of departure. These travelers will be required to provide one of the following: 

  • A recognized vaccination certificate issued by authorities of any third country; 
  • A certificate of recovery issued by the authorities of a third country that has joined the EU Digital COVID Certificate System (EUDCC) or the European or equivalent third country Digital COVID Vaccination certificate or recovery certificate
