Do you organise professional sporting events or youth activities? Or are you an entrepreneur in the hospitality or cultural sector? You may check if visitors have tested negative for the corona virus. With corona test certificates (testing for entrance) it will be possible to organise social activities more often and for more people. All basic corona rules remain in place.

Please note:

  • children under 13 do not need to be tested and can enter without a test certificate.
  • fully vaccinated persons do need a test certificate. Proof of vaccination is not a valid alternative to a corona test certificate.

Events from 30 June

From 30 June events may be organised with full visitor capacity and without having to maintain 1.5 metres distance (in Dutch). Visitors do need a corona test certificate, proof of vaccination or proof of recovery.

Test certificate

Your visitors will get tested for the corona virus before they visit your event or establishment. They will put the result in the CoronaCheck app on their smartphone. They can also choose to print a copy. The result remains valid for at most 40 hours.

Checking the result

As the organiser you can check if a person has tested negative for the corona virus with the CoronaCheck scanner. You scan the QR code on the visitor’s phone or their printed copy. If the screen turns green the person has tested negative for the virus. Then you check whether the data on your screen match the data on the proof of identity.
