Why do I need a QR-code?

As of September 25th, we no longer have to stay 1.5 meters away from each other. Because of this, the Dutch government has made a ‘coronavirus entry pass’ required which works with a QR-code in the CoronaCheck app. Restaurants and bars are required to check everyone at the door for a valid QR-code.

How do I get a QR-code?

If you have a double vaccination within the Netherlands, you can request a QR-code with your DigiD account. If you don’t have a vaccination in the Netherlands, you can make an appointment with Testen voor Toegang.

Can I get a QR-code without a DigiD account?

No this is not possible. In this case you will have to take a test with Testen voor Toegang.

How does Testen voor Toegang work?

You can make an appointment in your area at www.testenvoortoegang.nl. They will test you at the location you choose. You get the test results within two hours by e-mail. In the mail with your results you will receive a code. You have to enter this code in the CoronaCheck app to get a QR-code. The QR-code is then valid for 24 hours.

Can I provide other proof of vaccination?

Unfortunately, it is not possible to provide proof of vaccination or negative test in a different way. This is because the Dutch government has made the QR-code through the CoronaCheck app required.

I was recently infected with Covid-19, do I still need proof of vaccination or a negative test?
