Lithuania's ‘opportunity passport’ – how to access it

LRT.lt2021.05.24 13:39

As Lithuania rolls out its Covid-19 immunity certificate – the ‘opportunity passport’ – this week, the Economy Ministry has published instructions in English how to get it.

The pass is issued to people who have tested positive for Covid-19 in the past 210 days, have tested negative for coronavirus using a PCR or an antigen test in the last 48 hours, or have been fully vaccinated. A positive antibody test will grant you the pass for 60 days.

The certificate is issued one week after the first dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, two weeks after the first shot of the Janssen jab, and four weeks – but not later than 13 weeks – after the first shot of the AstraZeneca vaccine or immediately after the second dose.

The certificate is available two weeks after the first dose of any Covid-19 vaccine if you have previously recovered from the coronavirus.

The opportunity pass allows people vaccinated against or recovered from Covid-19 to access services and activities with fewer restrictions.

The pass is accessible to Lithuania's citizens and residents who covered by national health insurance (PSD) and whose immunity or coronavirus test data are logged into the national healthcare registry e.sveikata.

If you do not have access to the e-health online system, you may present printed documents, proving that you have been vaccinated, tested negative, or recovered from the coronavirus. If you meet the same conditions as set out in the Covid pass guidelines, the printed copies will be accepted instead of the certificate.

You can go to gpasas.lt to download the pass. Detailed instructions on how to do it, in English, are available here.
