How to receive a certificate
The “3G” rule (short for German “geimpft, getestet, genesen – vaccinated, tested, recovered”) is used to define low-risk groups in epidemiological terms. The „Green Pass“ confirms that you are tested, vaccinated or have recovered from Covid 19.
The following rules apply if you have been vaccinated against Covid-19
The first vaccination is valid under the 3G rule from the 22nd day for a maximum of three months, counted from the day of vaccination.
The second vaccination (booster shot) extends this period for a further six months.
If the vaccine you received requires no booster shot (e.g. Johnson & Johnson), the first vaccination is valid for the 3G rule from the 22nd day after the vaccination for a total of nine months. Again, the nine months are counted from the day of vaccination.
If you have recovered from Covid-19 and received your first vaccination, you are in the 3G group for nine months from the day of vaccination.
If you have recovered from Covid-19
, you do not have to test for the virus for six months from the end of the infection. You need your quarantine order or a medical certificate from your doctor to prove you have recovered from the infection. A positive test for antibodies neutralising the virus is valid for three months from the date of testing.
remain valid for different periods of time:
PCR tests are valid for 72 hours from the time of taking the sample.
Antigen tests carried out by an authorised body are valid for 48 hours from the time of taking the sample.
