International travellers will have access to online vaccine certificates from tomorrow, as Australia prepares to ease international border restrictions.
Available to be downloaded through the MyGov website, the certificates will provide proof to border controls around the world that the holder has been vaccinated against Covid-19. They’ll feature QR codes that can be scanned by foreign border officials as travellers enter and exit countries across the globe.
It’ll be linked to a physical passport, with travellers needing to provide their passport details when they apply for the document through Medicare. The certificate is then sent to the person who can choose to print it or save it to their phone.
This news comes following Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s announcement that international travel restrictions would begin to east from the start of next month for those that are full vaccinated.
Meanwhile, SA has started its VaxCheck pilot to incorporate Covid digital certificates into the MySA GOV app. Over the next few weeks, the test will ensure that its usability and security are up to par for public use. Once the test-run is completed, fully vaccinated South Australians will be able to add their Covid digital certificate to the mySA GOV app and show proof of vaccination when using the Covid safe check-in.
