EU Digital COVID Certificate (DCC)


The EU Digital COVID Certificate (DCC) was used for travel originating within the EU and EEA (the EU, plus Iceland, Norway, Lichtenstein, and Switzerland). It was a standardised record of a medical event which took place in an EU country.

Since 1 July 2023, you will no longer get an EU Digital Covid Certificate for a negative test (PCR and antigen) or as proof of recovery (recovery certificates).

However, the HSE will still give you evidence of your COVID-19 vaccination after you have been vaccinated.

If you want more information about COVID-19 vaccination certificates, visit the HSE website or call HSElive on 1800 700 700.

Since 6 March 2022, all COVID-19 travel restrictions were removed for travellers to Ireland. You no longer need to complete a passenger locator form. You also no longer need proof of vaccination or recovery, or a COVID-19 test.
