How is the CST checked?

How do I apply for my Covid Safe Ticket?

  • You can request your CST digitally in the CovidSafeBE app (the mobile app that you can download from the App Store or Google Play on your smartphone) or by logging on to websites such as Mijn Burgerprofiel, or MyHealthViewer.
  • If you do not have a smartphone or computer, you can obtain a paper version of your CST by logging on to Mijn Gezondheid, Mijn Burgerprofiel or by calling 078 78 78 50. Your Covid Safe Ticket will then be sent by post. Count on a waiting time of 1 week.
