  • Through the health application of your Autonomous Community. Install the app that corresponds to you, register and in it you will see a “Covid Certificate” section. Download it to the phone and you will have it in PDF format.
  • Through the Ministry of Health. It is a process that requires having a Cl @ ve or digital certificate: it is accessed through this website of the Ministry. Follow the steps and, after completing them, you will receive a notification along with the link to the PDF with the Covid Certificate.

With both methods you get the same result: the Covid Certificate in PDF format. Our recommendation is that you print it: taking it on paper is very practical if you are going to

Having the PDF on the phone, in addition to being printed on paper, you don’t need anything else: any other method will only work if you use the relevant app and it is convenient for you to have the Covid Certificate there. As with Google Pay: since it is the default payment application on Android, having the Certificate saved in your account guarantees that you can on any other device that you synchronize, including watches with Wear OS.

To install the Covid Certificate in Google Pay we will use third party services and applications. Since there is private medical data in the document, there will always be a risk that other people can access it. The software that we will recommend is safe and private, but you must assess its use and if it suits you.

  • Install Pass2Pay on your phone. It is an app that converts Apple Passbook passes into a Google Pay card.
  • Make sure you have the Covid Certificate in PDF format downloaded to your phone.
