Who can ask me to show my certificate?
- The police services of the EU countries may ask you to produce your certificate for verification when you are visiting their country.
- Travel organisations such as airlines can also demand to see your certificate. They do this to avoid unpleasant surprises in your destination country or to keep you from being refused access. Travellers should therefore consider such a check a service instead of a nuisance.
- Those responsible for access control at an event viz. volunteers and stewards, security firm personnel or an internal security service.
- Since 13 August event organisers can opt to use the CovidSafe Ticket system. For security and privacy reasons not just any QR code scanner is able to scan your code and view the data it contains. This also applies to other types of access tickets (e.g. movie tickets) that use a QR code. The identity on the ticket is also checked against that on the certificate using, for instance, an identity card, passport or driver's licence.
