On May 25th, 2021, the State Agency of Mandatory Health Insurance made a statement regarding the obtainment of COVID passports. There are two types of COVID passports: “COVID-19 Vaccine Certificate” and “COVID-19 Immunity Certificate”. A “Vaccine Certificate” is issued to individuals who have been vaccinated with two doses against the disease, and “Immunity Certificate” is issued to the individuals who were infected and have recovered.
In order to obtain these certificates on the official website of the State Agency of Mandatory Health Insurance, one needs to open “Şəxsi Kabinetə giriş (enter personal account)” subsection under the E-xidmətlər section (https://kabinet.its.gov.az/az/index).
