The corona passport app was developed and is designed specifically to show and scan corona passports, in contrast to existing solutions, such as the MinSundhed app, which serves a broader purpose and collects multiple health details.
The corona passport app collects information about vaccinations, testing status and immunity from previous infection in a single user-friendly solution, the design of which means that it basically displays a few or no personal details about the user. Additionally, the app only shows the valid corona passport, and the passport will automatically disappear if you no longer meet the requirements for a valid corona passport. There is therefore no need to show ID when presenting your corona passport in the app.
The corona passport app also includes a scanning function that can read the QR code in the corona passport which enables it to be used to verify the corona passport on other smartphones. At the same time, the new app enables quickly verifying whether a passport is valid, either by visual inspection or by scanning the passport.
It will still be possible to use other existing corona passport solutions such as the MinSundhed app and sundhed.dk to show a valid corona passport.
