  • the end of isolation certificate, issued by the Local heath center
  • a negative molecular (PCR) or antigen test result


  • Those who have received the vaccine (AstraZeneca, Moderna, Pfizer-BioNTech, Johnson & Johnson) with both doses can request the certificate from their Local Health Center. This is valid for 9 months.
  • For those who have only received the first dose of vaccine, the certificate which indicates the future date of the second dose, is valid as the green Covid-19 pass. This pass is valid until the second dose is received.
  • For those who have recovered from Covid-19, the certificate is issued by the doctor or by the hospital. It is valid for 6 months.
  • For those who are not vaccinated or healed from covid-19, they must perform a swab (antigenic or molecular PCR). The Swab is valid for 48 hours and must be certified by the facility that carries out the test.
