EU adopts equivalence decision on COVID digital certificate for North Macedonia

North Macedonia

With a new decision by the European Commission, COVID certificates issued by North Macedonia – as well as Turkey and Ukraine – will be accepted in the EU under the same conditions as the EU Digital COVID Certificate.  At the same time, North Macedonia, Turkey and Ukraine have agreed to accept the EU Digital COVID Certificate for travel from the EU to their countries. Their participation in the EU’s Digital COVID Certificate will thus facilitate safe travel to and from the EU.


Commissioner for Neighbourhood and Enlargement, Olivér Várhelyi, commented, “As we fight the pandemic together, our partners are also an integral part of opening up safely together. I welcome Ukraine, North Macedonia and Turkey in our Digital COVID Certificate system and look forward to more of our neighbours connecting soon.”


The decision entered into force on 20 August.
