Covid: Australia is moving towards reopening its borders – Oceania

(ANSA) – SYDNEY, Sept. 29 – Australia is getting closer to reopening international borders, expected by Christmas, with a new iPhone app that allows you to read a QR code for vaccination certificates. The app called VDS-NC Checker, developed by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, allows you to check international vaccination certificates.

As the Sydney Morning Herald reported today, it uses a technology promoted by the International Civil Aviation Organization called a digital visual seal, and can scan vaccination and test certificates. The description of the app states that it is “developed in accordance with the World Health Organization’s Guide for Safe Digital Vaccination Certificates.” “If the QR code is genuine, the app will display the most important certificate information, including holder biometrics and Covid-19 vaccinations. Initial application submission can certify certificates issued by Australia,” but future updates will also be able to certify certificates issued by countries Other (ANSA).
