Fully vaccinated Estonians can now travel abroad with VaccineGuard

The Estonian Government recently announced it has gone live with VaccineGuard to support the country’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Secure Vaccination Certificates, issued through the VaccineGuard platform for international travel are available immediately enabling Estonia citizens to cross borders with proof of vaccination status. The platform is based on a year long collaboration with the Estonian, Hungarian, and Icelandic Governments, the World Health Organisation and AstraZeneca Estonia.
