With the help of the CovPass app, all citizens can prove a Corona vaccination as well as recovery from Corona infection at any time. Please be aware that the CovPass app can only read certificates (i.e. QR codes) that meet European requirements.

How the CovPass app works
Store your EU COVID digital certificates
Open the CovPass app. Press the blue plus icon and scan the QR code of your certificate. The certificate will be downloaded to the smartphone along with the QR code. The most recent certificate is always displayed on the app's home page. You can also save certificates from other people, such as family members.
Check certificate validity when traveling abroad
If you are planning a trip, you can use the CovPass app to check in advance, without obligation, whether your certificate is valid in a certain country. The entry rules of the selected travel country are taken into account.
Show the QR code when needed
Have the QR code in the CovPass app scanned by the examiner. Please have your identification document ready.
Your data stays your data
You are the only one who decides when you show your digital vaccine record and who you show it to.
Data stored locally
Your full data is only ever stored on your smartphone.
Data minimisation and security
The QR code only contains a minimum amount of data, in accordance with EU specifications.
The data in the QR code is secured with a signature, preventing forgery.
