To ensure a safe and convenient journey, familiarise yourself with the requirements of entry and restrictions in your country of destination on the Reisi Targalt website or the ReOpen portal of the European Union, and, if necessary, contact the foreign mission of the country of destination for details.
In addition, register your trip at the Foreign Ministry’s Reisi Targalt website to allow the ministry to notify you of possible travel restrictions;
Note that if you stop at an airport in a transit country before reaching your final destination, you must also comply with the requirements of the transit countries.
We recommend arriving at the airport 2 hours before the departure. If you also intend to take the rapid antigen test, you need to set aside extra time for that and arrive earlier at the airport. Also, check-in desks of international flights will be opened 2 hours before the departure and in case of domestic flights, 1 hour before the departure. We advise checking in online and visiting a check-in desk only, if you want to drop off your checked-in baggage.
We can only permit a limited number of passengers into the security check area; therefore, the security check may take more time than usual.
People vaccinated in Estonia can generate the vaccination certificate for travelling (referred to as the EU Digital COVID Certificate) in the national patient portal digilugu.ee free of charge. When traveling, the certificate can be provided on both smart devices and paper. Before you travel, make sure that your digital excerpt is an immunisation certificate, not a response to an immunisation referral. The certificate can be recognised by the large European Union flag and QR code on it. You cannot travel with an immunisation referral response.
In addition to a digital immunisation certificate, also the so-called yellow immunisation passport is suitable for travelling, which the health service provider can issue on paper. Passengers, vaccinated abroad, will generally obtain the vaccination certificate either from their local health care system or from the health service provider who carried out the vaccination.
Before the travel, make sure that your vaccination certificate contains all the information required by the country of destination and transit and is in the appropriate language.
The requirement for entering my country of destination is that 14 days must have passed since my vaccination. How do I calculate the 14 days?
If the country of destination requires that 14 days have passed after your final vaccination, you can travel in two weeks on the next day of the week as your final vaccination. The day of vaccination itself is considered to be day 0, i.e., you should start counting from the next day after vaccination.
For example, if your vaccination was carried out on Tuesday, June 1, you can travel after two weeks, on Wednesday, June 16, in case of a 14 days’ requirement.
If my country of destination requires a negative coronavirus test certificate to board the flight or enter the country, where can I get one?
People who have taken a PCR test in Estonia can generate a negative coronavirus test certificate for travel in the national patient portal digilugu.ee (referred to as the EU Digital COVID Certificate). When traveling, the certificate can be provided on both smart devices and paper. Before you travel, make sure that your digital excerpt is the certificate of a negative test, not a response to a test referral. The certificate can be recognised by the large European Union flag and QR code on it. You cannot travel with an excerpt of the referral response.
Before the travel, make sure that your negative test certificate contains all the information required by the country of destination and transit and is in the appropriate language.
Do you get a certificate suitable for travelling with the results of the test taken at the airport coronavirus antigen rapid test facility?
The customer is always issued a travel-ready certificate at their e-mail for the result of the rapid antigen test performed at the Confido airport testing facility, which can be used immediately for travel. No extra charge is taken for the certificate and it will be sent to the customer together with the test result, generally within 30 minutes as of taking the test. Please make sure before travel and taking the test that your country of destination and transit countries accept the rapid antigen test result.
Is the certificate of the result of the corona test, issued by the service provider who carried out testing, also suitable for travel?
As an alternative to the certificate generated from the patient portal, generally also a certificate issued by the service provider who carried out testing is suitable for travel, unless your country of destination or transit states otherwise. We ask you to check before each trip whether your certificate contains all the necessary information that is required by the country of destination and transit countries and that the certificate has been issued in a suitable language.
