Registering your EU vaccine certificate in Australia

To find out how to register the vaccine you received when you were overseas into the Australian Immunisation Register please visit Smartraveller: COVID-19 vaccinations.


Obtaining the EU vaccine certificate while in Sweden

Vaccinated in Sweden: to obtain a vaccination certificate in Sweden, you must have been vaccinated in Sweden, have a Swedish personal identity number, and have approved e-Identification or a registered address in Sweden.


Transferring your Australian vaccination certificate into an EU vaccination certificate

  • The Swedish Government has decided that the Swedish eHealth Agency and National Government Service Centre are to commence an agreement to provide vaccination certificates to persons registered in Sweden but vaccinated in a third country. This service is expected to be put into use before the 1st of February 2022.
  • This solution will initially target persons that are registered in Sweden and have a digital mailbox. The Swedish Government is still looking into how those that are not registered in Sweden and vaccinated in a third country can obtain vaccination certificates.
  • Find more information here.


Coming to Sweden from Australia

  • For any questions regarding entering Sweden or regarding Swedish border requirements please check with the Swedish Police.
