Creation and effect of the corona passport in the app
You can use your digital corona passport in the app when you have had the first dose or are fully vaccinated, if you have a negative COVID-19 test result, or if you have been infected with the COVID-19 virus.
When you use the app, data will be stored on your phone as to whether you are vaccinated against COVID-19, your test results, and any previous COVID-19 infection.
We use automated decision-making when creating and displaying your corona passport in the app on the basis of your data. You will get a valid corona passport in the following cases:
- When you have had the first dose or are fully vaccinated with an approved COVID-19 vaccine.
- If you have tested negative for COVID-19.
- If you have been previously infected with the COVID-19 virus after having tested positive.
You can read more about how to obtain a valid corona passport and for how long it will be valid here:
Corona passport - when and where
The effect of the decision as to whether you get a valid corona passport is, that you, when a valid corona passport is required under Danish law, can gain access to the premises etc. where this requirement applies, and whether you can travel within the EU or to other countries that accept the EU corona passport, as entry documentation regarding COVID-19 status.
You are not obliged to use the app or to get a corona passport. If you do not wish to use the app, you can get a physical corona passport instead if you comply with the conditions in this respect. For more information about the possibilities of getting physical documentation, please visit the page Corona passport.
Presentation of your corona passport in the app
The corona passport app has two display options:
- EU/international travel
During periods when there are no national restrictions that make it necessary to be able to present a valid corona passport to gain access to premises etc., SSI can turn off the display option "Denmark" in the app. In the same way, SSI can turn off the "EU/international travel" display option if at some point it is no longer necessary to be able to present a valid corona passport when travelling within the EU or other countries that accept EU corona passport, as entry documentation regarding COVID-19- status.
If this happens, there will only be one display option in the corona passport app, but it will not affect the app's functions.
The display option “Denmark” is the display option you must use when you use the app in Denmark, and with this display option you do not disclose your data on vaccination, test results and previous infection to the official when the passport is checked. When you show your corona passport to anyone in Denmark, the app will indicate whether or not the corona passport is valid, but not why.
The display option “EU/international travel” is the display option you must use when you use the app in connection with travel, and you are required to disclose more data when your passport is checked, including data on vaccination, test results and previous infection.
The app allows you to easily switch between the two display options for use in Denmark and abroad, respectively, so that only necessary data are displayed.
Presentation of your children’s corona passport in the app
You can also access your children's corona passport in your app. You can access and display the corona passport for the child or children for whom you are registered as holding custody in the CPR register. However, this does not apply if name and address protection for the child has been registered in the Centralized Civil Register.
The display of your child's corona passport for control purposes functions in the same way as the display of your own corona passport.
