How long is the health certificate valid?

If you have been issued the certificate for the first time, we must carry out a follow-up instruction within 3 months of you receiving it.

We take care of this immediately when you upload the document in the app. You will receive confirmation of the follow-up instruction by email shortly afterwards. Please note that you must repeat the follow-up instruction in the app every 2 years.
