Digital EU Covid certificates from Sweden (EU:s digitala covidbevis) can be downloaded from this link https://covidbevis.se/vaccinationsbevis-web/. Vaccinations are registered within 7 days from the shot, while the digital certificate of recovery from Covid-19 infection can be requested to one’s GP at least 11 days following the first positive test result (NAAT test type, like PCR). The test must have been performed by qualified sanitary staff and registered in the patient’s journal. Antibody test are not valid. The validity of the recovery certificate is of 180 days from the first positive test result. Currently, recovery certificates are issued only if the Covid test has been performed by Swedish healthcare staff.
For the certificate of negativity to Covid-19, it is necessary to contact an authorised clinic. A list can be found here.
The clinic will send the result of the test to the healthcare authority responsible for the issue of the digital certificate. The data will then be uploaded on the platform https://covidbevis.se/vaccinationsbevis-web/ . Please refer to the clinic for further details regarding the time required to issue the certificate. This is needed to verify its validity in order to enter Italy or another country (in case of transit).
In case you do not possess a Swedish digital identity, it is possible to request a substitutive certificate, digital or in paper form.
