As of 28 December, the National Certificate (Covid passport) and its alternative documents will no longer be valid for those residents who were vaccinated under the full vaccination schedule more than 7 months ago. In view of the planned changes, it is recommended that those who have reached the time for a booster dose against COVID-19, book a vaccination appointment, and get vaccinated.

The National Certificate or its alternative documents will apply for those from 16 years and older:

for the vaccinated:

• for a limited period - in the case of vaccination with one of the following COVID-19 vaccines:

- from one week to 210 days after the administration of the second dose of Comirnaty or Spikevax vaccine under the vaccination schedule;
- from 2 weeks to 210 days after the administration of the dose of COVID-19 Vaccine Janssen;
- from 4 weeks to 13 weeks after the administration of the first dose of Vaxzevria. After the administration of the second dose of Vaxzevria under the vaccination schedule - up to 210 days.
- from 2 weeks to 210 days after the administration of one dose of Comirnaty, Spikevax, or Vaxzevria vaccine to those who have recovered from the COVID-19 disease (coronavirus infection) confirmed by a positive SARS-CoV-2 PCR test result;
- from one week to 210 days after the administration of the second dose of Comirnaty or Vaxzevria vaccine, where the first dose was Vaxzevria vaccine and the second dose was Comirnaty vaccine, or vice versa.

•    for an unlimited period:

- after a booster dose of Comirnaty, Spikevax, or COVID-19 Vaccine Janssen (it comes into effect on the day the booster dose is administered). Children under 18 years of age are not vaccinated with a booster dose;
- those vaccinated under the full schedule, if they are 16 to 18 years of age (including those recovered from the disease confirmed by a PCR test and vaccinated under an incomplete schedule).
- those recovered from COVID-19 (confirmed by a positive SARS-CoV-2 PCR test result) and vaccinated under the full schedule.

For the recovered ones:

•   in the case of recovery from COVID-19 infection confirmed by a positive result of a PCR test an antigen test and maximum 210 days have passed of the positive testing (but not before the completion of the mandatory self-isolation period).

For the tested ones:

•  in the case of a positive result of a quantitative or semi-quantitative serological immunological test (covering anti-S, anti-S1 or anti-RBD IgG antibodies against SARS-CoV-2) received within less than the last 60 days. Please note that rapid serological tests taken at mobile points will not count for the purpose of the National Certificate. Residents of the country may take quantitative and semi-quantitative serological tests both after illness and after a full vaccination schedule;
• in the case of a negative paid PCR test taken within 72 hours (from the moment of sample collection).

As of 28 December, a National Certificate or its alternative documents will also be a requirement for children from 12 years and 2 months to 16 years of age. A National Certificate or its alternative documents will be issued to vaccinated, recovered, or tested children:

•  who, within the last seven days (from the time of sample collection), have gone through PCR testing or a rolling nasal swab specimen testing based on the PCR method at school with a negative test result thereof;
•  for an unlimited period after vaccination under the full vaccination schedule or after the past infection (confirmed by a positive result of a PCR test) and vaccination with at least one dose of the vaccine. Currently, children are not subject to booster vaccination;
•   in the case of recovery with diagnosis confirmed by a positive result of a PCR test or an antigen test, and maximum 210 days have passed of the positive testing (but not before the completion of the mandatory self-isolation period);
•  in the case of a positive result of a quantitative or semi-quantitative serological immunological test (covering anti-S, anti-S1 or anti-RBD IgG antibodies against SARS-CoV-2) received within less than the last 60 days;

Please note that the first or a booster dose of a COVID-19 vaccine can be booked online at Koronastop.lt or by dialling #1808. Vaccines may also be available from your GP. You have to contact your health provider’s reception desk to find out if they carry out vaccinations against COVID-19.

Access the National Certificate is available to all people who have a personal identification number in Lithuania and whose data (on vaccination, testing and coronavirus disease) is entered to the Lithuanian health electronic system. The National Certificate will be linked to this system; data for the National Certificate is generated on the basis of this system. Foreigners who come to Lithuania and have a residence permit and who are registered with the Migration Service, receive a Lithuanian personal identification number.

Fully vaccinated foreign citizens are able to benefit from the National Certificate activities with the EU Digital COVID Certificate.

 

Instead of the National Certificate, foreign tourists will be able to produce printed vaccination documents issued by other countries. 

Fully vaccinated foreign citizens are able to benefit from the National Certificate activities with the EU Digital COVID Certificate.

Foreigners with a negative coronavirus test carried out in Lithuania will also be able to get more services; yet, they will have to do the testing at their own expense. 

The test will be valid for 48 hours from the time of taking the sample after the PCR pay test or antigen pay test.

The National Certificate is a QR code for individuals who have been vaccinated against coronavirus, have had a coronavirus infection or have a negative COVID-19 test result. This code is also available for printing.

The National Certificate is linked to the ehealth system. It only contains data needed to identify an individual. After reading the QR code received, the individual’s identity is checked with an identity document.

With the National Certificate I will be able to participate in indoor and outdoor events with unlimited number of spectators. 

According to the requirements currently in force people who return from foreign countries to Lithuania are subject to isolation if they have not been vaccinated. They will only be able to use the National Certificate after their isolation period is over. Fully vaccinated people who return to Lithuania from foreign countries are not subject to self-isolation.

From 24 May 2021, the National Certificate will come into force in Lithuania but will not be valid in other foreign countries.

Residents are able to do PCR test in private healthcare facilities at their own expense.

Only the following will be able to perform a free PCR test at mobile points:

  • persons to whom a family doctor or allergist will diagnose an allergy to one of the components of the vaccine;
  • pregnant women who will need to present a maternity card at a mobile point.

 

The verifier of the National Certificate will be able to scan the QR code produced by an individual to make sure that his/her National Certificate is valid and contact activities are allowed for that particular individual. The verifier will see in the display the same National Certificate as the National Certificate holder, containing the QR code and personal information (name, surname, the date of birth).

The verifier may: a) trust the National Certificate produced by a particular individual and let him/her in; (b) scan the QR code and make sure that the National Certificate is not false; (c) ask the particular individual to additionally produce an identity document to make sure that the National Certificate belongs to that particular  individual.

Individuals who have no access to e-Government Gates (identify themselves through e-banking or e-signature) will be able to come to the nearest customer service point of the Centre of Registers, Sodra branches, Lithuanian post offices and pharmacies, which will voluntarily decide to provide this service, and after producing a personal ID number get a paper National Certificate by submitting their personal number.

NB:  the Lithuanian National Certificate may be only available where the data about vaccination, coronavirus disease or test result exist in eHealth, i.e. the data was entered by Lithuanian health professionals.

No. Along with the National Certificate it may be required to produce an identity document; no other additional documents are needed. Medical extracts are not considered the National Certificate. The National Certificate contains the data present in medical extracts, but people do not need to have such extracts with them.
