The Philippines’ Covid-19 digital vaccination certificate or VaxCertPH is now accepted and recognized in all countries and states across the European Union (EU), the Department of Health (DOH) said. 

In a press statement, the DFA said Filipinos can now use the country’s vaccination certificate to confirm their vaccination status among the EU states since VaxCertPH has been accepted in the EU Digital Covid Certificate (EUDCC) system.

“The onboarding of the VaxCertPH to the EUDCC means that technical recognition is accorded to VaxCertPH which will now be regarded uniformly along with all issued EU DCC certificates recognized by EU member countries. The same courtesy shall be applied by the Philippines to EU DCC certificates presented at international ports on entry,” the department said.

The DFA said Filipino travelers will now experience “seamless, expedited, safe travel and mobility” to and within the EU and other 48 non-EU countries and territories under the digital system.
