COVID Certificate point opened in Frenckell
The City of Tampere has opened a service point in the Frenckell building in the city centre, which provides a COVID Certificate (i.e. a COVID-19 passport) if it cannot be printed or downloaded from the Omakanta web service. The point serves the residents of Tampere and Orivesi, as well as people from outside the EU who are staying in Tampere and Orivesi for a long time.
There is no need to reserve time for the COVID Certificate service point, which operates on a number-by-number basis. You can get a COVID Certificate at the service point by visiting in person. A photo ID is required.
A COVID Certificate can also be made for long-term residents from outside the EU who are in Tampere or Orivesi for work or study, for example. To receive the certificate, the customer must carry the necessary documentation of the vaccinations given outside the EU and the reason for the long stay. The COVID Certificate can only be issued for vaccine products authorised by the European Commission or the WHO emergency use listing. People from outside the EU must also visit the service point in person to obtain a certificate. The certificate cannot be obtained remotely, for example, by e-mail or telephone.
How do you get a COVID-19 passport?
The EU Digital COVID Certificate acts as a COVID-19 passport, which can be downloaded from the Omakanta.fi online service. It includes evidence of coronavirus vaccination, a coronavirus test and any history of coronavirus disease. The certificate will appear in Omakanta within five days of receiving the vaccine.
