Australia is approaching the reopening of international borders, through a new iPhone application that lets you read the QR code of vaccination certificates.
The application called “VDS-NC Checker”, developed by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, will scan international vaccination certificates.
As the Sydney Morning Herald reports today, it uses a technology promoted by the International Civil Aviation Organization called the Visable Digital Seal, and can scan both vaccination certificates and test certificates.
If the QR Code is authentic, the application displays more information about the certificate, including the holder’s bio-data and immunizations against Covid-19.
Initial submission of the application may validate certificates issued by Australia, but future updates will also be able to validate certificates issued by other countries.
