PCR test with travel certificate

We do no longer offer PCR test with travel certificate.

The PCR test

The PCR test will show if you have the Covid-19 virus. A nurse will collect a sample by inserting a test swab into your throat and nose. The Public Health Agency (Folkhälsomyndigheten) does not recommend a PCR test if you have tested positive for Covid-19 within the last 6 months. If the test is negative, you will receive a digital Covid certificate that is valid within Europe.

Kry is connected to the E-health authority's e-service digital covid-19 certificate. This means that your negative test for Covid-19 can automatically be stored in a digital Covid certificate. You can use your Covid certificate when travelling in Europe.

Please note that you must download and log in to the Kry app to get your travel certificate. If you have a digital mailbox, your Covid certificate will also be sent to it.

The digital Covid certificate

  • The travel certificate includes a QR code.
  • The certificate is a digital Covid certificate and approved by the E-health authority for travelling in Europe.
  • The certificate is a PDF with date and time of the test sample collection.
  • The certificate is valid for 7 days. It's up to you to check the rules of travel, as this may vary for different destinations.
  • You will get the certificate within 48 hours – even on weekends.
  • The certificate is written in English and Swedish.

Is the digital Covid certificate a valid travel document?
No, it is not a valid travel document. The digital Covid certificate shows that you have tested negative for Covid-19. A travel document is, for example, a passport or an international ID card.
