The vaccination on which it is based must be comprised of one or more of the vaccines listed by the Paul Ehrlich Institute at www.pei.de/impfstoffe/covid-19 and
either comprise the number of vaccine doses necessary to provide full protection as published online by the Paul Ehrlich Institute at https://www.pei.de/impfstoffe/covid-19, and no less than 14 days may have elapsed since the last required single vaccination, or
for recovered persons, consist of the administration of one vaccine dose. To prove they are fully vaccinated, recovered persons must prove that they had had COVID-19 before they were vaccinated. Proof is provided by submitting a positive PCR test.
2. To certify vaccination, the proof must include the following data:
The personal data of the vaccinated person (at least surname, first name and date of birth or number of passport/identity card/ID card)
Date of vaccination, number of vaccinations,
Name of the disease vaccinated against and
Distinguishing marks that indicate which person or institution is responsible for performing the vaccination or issuing the certificate, such as an official emblem or the issuer’s name.
3. Proof of full vaccination must be provided in German, English, French, Italian or Spanish.
4. Proof in written or digital form is accepted if it meets the criteria listed in 1., 2., and 3.

Proof in digital form need to have been issued in digital form by the authorised issuer and transmitted in digital form to the authorised recipient.
Please note that these are general requirements under the Ordinance on Coronavirus Entry Regulations.
