HOIA In Europe

HOIA now also receives anonymous notifications from most European Union close contact-tracing applications.

Now you can get close contact notifications from when you are abroad and also from foreign citizens.

Download the local contact-tracing app for the country you are currently in. You can find country-specific close contact-tracing apps in the Apple (iOS) App Store or the Google Play Store (Android).

The process of marking yourself ill differs in each country's close contact-tracing app:

  1. When you receive a positive COVID-19 test, the service provider will give you a unique code.

    When taking the test, be sure to ask how to obtain and use this code.

  2. You can enter this code into the app of the country you are currently in.

    Only the Estonian hold app has a solution for authentication through the patient portal, and in most foreign apps it is possible to do it on the basis of a code issued by the test taker.

  3. Once you've entered the code, the app will send notifications to users from all the countries, who have joined this service and with whom your close contact was identified.

    Similarly, you can use the HOIA app to find out if you have been exposed to COVID-19 case that has been registered in another country.
