Greece is part of the first wave of countries that activate the European Covid Certificate from Tuesday, as Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said on Monday during a cabinet meeting.
“It declares our readiness for a safer and freer summer and I want to congratulate all those who have worked together so that an idea that the Greek government first expressed is now implemented and Greece is at the forefront of this important digital tool,” the Prime Minister said.
The digital green certificate is the digital proof that a person has been vaccinated against the pandemic, either tested negative or has recovered from Covid-19 disease. The aim is to facilitate the safe free movement of citizens within the EU during the pandemic.
Thus, Greek citizens can enter the Unified Digital Platform, gov.gr, and issue the green pass using either their personal passwords to Taxisnet or their AMKA number.
