Digital COVID certificates
Austria is opening up with vaccination, test and recovery certificates – simple, safe and verifiable.
There are currently forgeries of the EU Digital COVID Certificates in circulation, such as the Corona Green Pass Austria app. This is fraud.
How do I get my certificate?
The EU Digital COVID Certificates can easily be retrieved with an electronic signature via mobile phone (mobile phone signature for short) from gesundheit.gv.at. All certificates with EU-compliant QR codes can be shown when required either electronically or in printed form in combination with photo ID. Already existing forms of evidence can also continue to be used in Austria.
What? When? How?
There are lots of questions about the topics of the EU Digital COVID Certificates, certificates and the vaccination – test – recovery rule (referred to as the 3-G rule in Austria).
