NZ Pass Verifier is a free health ministry app for businesses to scan and validate their customers’ My Vaccine Pass.
About NZ Path Verifier
If the COVID-19 protection framework is in place, some companies will need to verify their customer’s MyVaccine Pass using the NZ Pass Verifier app with certain signal settings.
The requirements depend on the business sector and the choices the business makes about how it works under the framework.
Before the framework takes effect, business.govt.nz will publish guidance on business requirements under the new framework, including path validation.
You cannot use the NZ Pass Verifier to scan your international travel vaccination certificate.
Vaccine Pass App NZ
Allow camera permission
The NZ Pass Verifier app requires camera permissions to be able to scan the My Vaccine Pass QR code.
The app will request this permission when you start the scan.
Scan COVID-19 My Vaccine Path
Press the large Scan button to scan the path. This will bring up the scan screen.
Point your smartphone at the QR code on the pass so that it fits in the target area of the screen.
A valid scanned path will display the person’s name and date of birth (as shown in My Vaccine Pass) with a green checkmark and the word “valid”.
If the NZ Vaccine Pass is not valid, the app will tell you why. This includes:
- The pass has expired
- Or can’t confirm the QR code.
To scan another path, tap the Scan Again button or swipe down on the results screen to close the path.
Scanning the path does not tell you if you are fully vaccinated, even if you meet the vaccination requirements. People may be fully vaccinated or medically exempt (only a few New Zealanders are exempt). This maintains the privacy of those who cannot be vaccinated medically.
Visually checking the path is not enough to allow entries. Scanning someone’s path proves that the path is genuine, valid, and has not expired.
Scan the path without internet
The first app download and first scan require internet, after which the NZ Pass Verifier app can scan MyVaccine Pass without an internet connection, but on a regular basis so that we can verify all valid My You need to connect to the Internet. Vaccine path.
