Last update 11.08.2021

Vaccinated abroad or tested positive abroad: request for a DCC via MyGuichet.lu

Please note

Please note: this procedure only concerns people who have been vaccinated or tested positive abroad and want to apply for a European certificate of vaccination or recovery.

Anyone who has been vaccinated in Luxembourg and wishes to receive a new European vaccination certificate in paper form by post should consult the following explanatory information text and follow the steps described there: 'Request for receiving the CovidCheck Certificate by post'.

The above are 2 distinct online procedures that should not be mistaken for each other. Applications submitted using the wrong procedure cannot be processed.

Luxembourg nationals as well as Luxembourg residents who have been vaccinated against COVID-19 or tested positive for COVID-19 abroad can apply online to receive to a European certificate of vaccination or recovery from the Luxembourg Health Directorate. This is referred to as a Digital COVID Certificate (DCC).

This certificate:

  • proves that a person has been vaccinated against COVID-19 or has recovered from an infection;
  • is valid:
    • in all of the European Union (EU);
    • in Iceland;
    • in Liechtenstein;
    • in Norway;
    • in Switzerland;
  • contains a secure QR code that can be read by the applications in the different participating countries (27 EU Member States, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland) in order to check that the certificate is genuine.

The certificate can be requested via MyGuichet.lu.

Who is concerned

All Luxembourg nationals and Luxembourg residents who:

  • have been vaccinated against COVID-19 abroad; or
  • have been tested positive for COVID-19 abroad; and
  • have a 13-digit Luxembourg national identification number (matricule).

Please note: if the person concerned already has a CCD, they cannot apply.
