Is your Covid Recovery Certificate QR code compatible with third party apps?

Is your Covid Recovery Certificate QR code compatible with third party apps?

The QR code on your certificate is a C19 Testing specific anti-fraud feature that enables confirmation of key certificate details by scanning the QR code with a compatible device (such as a smartphone). 

 

This QR code has not been created to be compatible with the Covid apps of individual foreign countries e.g. The French 'Tous Anti Covid' app or the Italian 'Green Pass' app or by third party apps such a Verifly. This does not mean that you cannot use a certificate, just that the app should not use the QR code to derive the certificate information.

 

Similarly, your certificate is not an EU digital covid pass and does not contain EU digital covid certificate features. The UK is no longer in the EU and is not part of this programme.

 

Our Covid Recovery certificate can be used for outbound travel to countries that accept these and where you meet the requirements that they have stipulated for the use of a previous positive test result to facilitate entry.
