General information about vaccination certificates

We will continue to offer our visitors safe and secure events. On 1 December 2021, the government, on the advice of the Swedish Public Health Agency, introduced vaccination certificates that will apply to public gatherings and public events with over 100 visitors. We are in favor of the introduction of vaccination certificates and will follow these rules and recommendations. We hope for mutual understanding from everyone involved so that together we can carry out the festival in the best way.

This is how vaccination certificates work 

A valid vaccination certificate is given to those who have taken two doses of vaccine. The proof together with identification allows you to attend the event. You can either bring the vaccination certificate with you on your smartphone or bring a paper printout with you.

Checking vaccination certificates at an event:

  • Download your vaccination certificate at www.covidbevis.se (mobile Bank ID required)..
  • Check that your vaccination certificate is valid over the concert date (both printed and digital vaccination certificates are valid).
  • Be ready to show ID card / identification in connection with the presentation of the vaccination certificate.
  • Come in good time! The entry may take a little longer, so be sure to be in place well in advance before the concert begins for a smooth entry.

What if I have a ticket but am not vaccinated? 

Regarding possible repurchase of tickets, especially for those who bought tickets before September 2021 when the government issued recommendations for the unvaccinated to avoid crowds and keep their distance from other people even when the restrictions were released, we are waiting for information from the government and authorities how to deal with this issue both practically and financially. If you have questions about your ticket, we recommend that you contact your ticket dealer. Your ticket is not personal and can be transferred.

Q & A

DOES VACCINATION CERTIFICATES FROM OTHER EU COUNTRIES APPLY / NON EU COUNTRIES?

Yes, vaccination certificates from other EU countries, as well as other countries that are connected to the EU’s digital covid certificates, apply. At the time of writing, evidence from 51 countries applies.

See the full list here.

HOW DO I GET A VACCINATION CERTIFICATE?

*FOR SWEDISH CITIZENS*
Start by vaccinating yourself. Within seven days, the vaccination is reported to the National Vaccination Register. Then you can log in with e-identification at covidbevis.se. If you do not have an e-identification, you can read about how to obtain an e-identification here, or print out, fill in and post this form. The certificate is then sent to your population registration address.

After logging in with e-identification, it is possible to download, print or save the certificate. It is also sent automatically to your digital mailbox. If you do not have one, you can get a digital mailbox here.

For foreign visitors, please check your countries own system on how to obtain a vaccination certificate.

DOES IT COST?

No, the vaccination certificate is free. Vaccination is also free.

IS ONE DOSE ENOUGH?

For a valid certificate, two doses are required.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

The vaccination certificate has a QR code which, when scanned, confirms that you have been vaccinated against covid-19. The certificate with the QR code can be obtained both digitally and on paper.

WHAT INFORMATION IS ON IT?

The vaccination certificate states the name, date of birth, date of issue, in which member country the vaccination was performed, which vaccine and how many doses were taken and how long the certificate is valid.

DOES IT MATTER WHAT VACCINE I HAVE TAKEN?

No. The vaccination certificate applies to all covid-19 vaccines that have been approved by the EU.

HOW LONG DOES THE CERTIFICATE LAST?

If the vaccination certificate has been issued between 1 July – 30 September 2021, it is valid for 90 days.
If the certificate has been issued October 1-December 31, 2021, it is valid for 180 days.
You can pick up a new vaccination certificate at any time from covidbevis.se

IS IT POSSIBLE TO GET WITHOUT A SWEDISH SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER?

At the moment, it is not possible to get a Swedish vaccination certificate for those who do not have a Swedish social security number and have had your vaccination registered on a reserve number. But the Swerdish E-health authority has been commissioned by the government to solve it by the turn of the year 2021-2022.

If you have a Swedish social security number but have had your vaccination registered on a reserve number or coordination number, you can contact your vaccinator and ask them to register the vaccination on your social security number instead.

If you are vaccinated in Sweden, but have a coordination number and do not have a population registration address, you should use this special form. The certificate is then sent to a PostnNord pick-up place and you will receive a notification from PostNord when it is possible to pick up the letter.

WHAT SHOULD I DO IF I CAN NOT GET VACCINATED (medical reasons)?

If you have medical reasons that prevent you from getting vaccinated, a medical certificate instead of a vaccine certificate is also valid.

DOES A NEGATIVE COVID TEST ALSO APPLY?

No, a negative test or a history of the illness does not give access to events that require proof of vaccination.

MUST ALL VISITORS PROVIDE VACCINATION CERTIFICATES FOR ENTRY?

No, the requirement for a vaccination certificate applies to people who are 18 years and older.

But keep in mind that House of Metal has an 18-year age limit. This means that you must be 18 years of age to gain admission to the festival.
Under 18 years of age, only access in the company of * guardians.

* Guardian = adult (at least 25 years), with vaccination certificate, sober and willing to be responsible for the youth.

Do not forget to bring identification.

Attendats do not need their own ticket but a attendants certificate.
