How to download the Green Pass

In Italy only the Ministry of Health can issue the Green Pass and it does so on the basis of the data sent by the individual Regions and Autonomous Provinces. Once the vaccine has been carried out or after having made a molecular or antigenic swab that tested negative or after healing from Covid, the Green Pass is automatically generated in a printable digital format.

At this point, you will receive an email from "Ministry of Health" (noreply.digitalcovidcertificate@sogei.it) or the SMS message from "Min Salute" with an authentication code to be used to download it or you can consult the website of the Government using digital identity. Let's see in detail the various channels from which you can download the Green Pass.

What to do if you are unable to obtain the Green Pass

From the Ministry of Health they communicate that the procedure to follow is to go to the general practitioner, to the pharmacy or, better, to the hub where you have been vaccinated and have your data entered again, those present on the immunization sheet.
