FAQ

Who can get a certificate?

Since February 1st 2022, Croatia has had new regulations for issuing EU digital COVID certificates that comply with the EU Regulation and Council Recommendation.

Booster vaccination

If it has been less than 365 days since the last dosage in the series, a booster vaccination certificate will be issued. Certificates are primariy issued to people who have received two doses of vaccine and a third or booster dose (3/3), to those who has recovered from COVID-19 and are then primary vaccinated with two doses and with a third dose (3/3), and for each additional vaccination, for example 4/4, etc.

Booster after single vaccination dose (Janssen)

A booster vaccination certificate will also be issued to people who were primary vaccinated with a single-dose vaccine and then received one (2/1) or two additional doses of two-dose vaccine (3/1), as well as those who were vaccinated with a single-dose vaccine and then received a second dose of the same or a different vaccine that is also received in a single dose (2/1).

These certificates can be requested from the date of vaccination with the last specified dose.

Whether the illness happened before or after vaccination, the recovery is not recognized as a booster dose in the EU digital COVID certification system.

Primary vaccination

The certificate of primary vaccination (1/1, 2/2) is issued if no more than 270 days have passed since the last dose in the series. They are issued to people who have been primarily vaccinated with vaccines given in one (1/1) or two doses (2/2), as well as to those who have been recovered and vaccinated with one dose of vaccine given in two doses (1/1) and people who have been recovered and vaccinated with vaccine given in a single dose (1/1).

Since February 1st, it's no longer possible to request a certificate of primary vaccination older than 270 days. Certificates previously issued will remain valid in the Republic of Croatia for 365 days, but not for crossing the border.

These certificates can be requested from the day of vaccination with the last prescribed dose.

Certificates are valid for crossing the border on the 14th day from the day of vaccination with the last specified dose.

The first dose

Certificates are valid for 84 days in the Republic of Croatia for people who have received the first dose of the two-dose vaccine (AstraZeneca). These can be requested on the 22nd day from the day of vaccination.

Certificates are valid for 42 days in the Republic of Croatia for those who have received the first dose of the two-dose vaccine (Pfeizer, Moderna). These can be requested on the 22nd day from the day of vaccination.

IMPORTANT! A new EU digital COVID certificate must be requested after each change in a person's vaccination status, whether it is the first, second or each additional dose of the vaccine.

Which information and documents do I need to request my certificate via the e-Građani portal?

Other than the credentials of the required security levels (2 and 3), you do not need to provide any further information or documents. The system automatically retrieves user data from the database maintained by the Ministry of Health and a certificate is generated by clicking “Zatraži potvrdu”. 

May I use the certificate via my mobile phone?

Yes. You can save the certificate as a PDF file or in the CovidGO mobile app and present it to the person in charge of reading the QR code and other important data.

To store the COVID certificate in the digital wallet of the CovidGO mobile application, you need to click on the link you received in the e-mail with the EU digital COVID certificate on the mobile device.

The link leads to the screen within the application with the option "Add to wallet", after which it is necessary to enter the password for the mobile application from the COVID certificate. Without entering a password, the confirmation will not be stored in the application wallet.

The certificate can also be saved by selecting the digital wallet icon within the application, in the lower left corner and clicking on the "Add new certificate" option. Then scan the certificate code and click on the "Save" option. In this case, the user also has to enter the password on the confirmation.

By storing the COVID certificate, the user agrees to save a certain set of personal data.

Deleting the COVID certificate
To delete a certificate from your digital wallet, click the "Remove certificate" option.
After deleting, you can store the same certificate in another wallet.

IMPORTANT: A COVID certificate can be stored on up to 10 different devices at the same time. If you have reached this limit, you must delete the certificate from one of the devices on which it is stored before you can successfully enter it into another wallet on the new device.
