How to receive the CoronaCheck QR code

As of September 25th, to access restaurants/bars, events, pop venues, theaters, cinemas or sport events, you need to show a “Corona certificate”. This certificate proves that you are either:

  1. Fully vaccinated
  2. Recovered from the corona virus
  3. Have recently been tested negative for the corona virus

1. If you have been vaccinated outside of the European Union, you need to make an appointment to register your certificate with the GGD (Utrecht) by calling +31 (0)30 800 2899. They have a location in Groningen. The number might be hard to reach, so keep trying to get through. There are some requirements for your proof of vaccination to be accepted: for example a Chinese certificate needs to be officially translated or the vaccine has to be EMA approved. For more information on getting your certificate registered and making the appointment see the Government’s website. If you have no proof of being vaccinated outside the EU you can not apply for a vaccination certificate in the Netherlands.

2. If you tested positive in another EU country, you should contact the organization that conducted the test. They can issue you with proof of recovery. Proof of recovery cannot be issued in the Netherlands on the basis of a positive test taken abroad.

3. To get tested, book an appointment with testenvoortoegang. The tests are free of charge and valid for 24 hours. If you get a negative test result, you can submit the code you’ve received via mail into the CoronaCheck app or printout. The unique code will be converted into a QR code, which will be scanned before entering the venue.

You can download the CoronaCheck app to your phone or use a printed paper version together with your proof of identity to gain entrance.
