Covpass … Green Pass … app … wallet … SafePass …

Post by MacManiac » Tue Jul 13, 2021 4:25 pm

There is a barrage of information regarding all of these terms, and I am lost in it all. I am happy to produce my vaccination record as a SafePass but would much prefer something digital. I would hate to lose the vaccination record, as I suspect it would be inconvenient to get another one.

I have seen people turned away in bars and restaurants when they proffered their phones with all sorts of stuff on them. I have no intention of travelling from Cyprus but I would prefer a way to “prove” my status. Is something on the way? Or am I lost in the details? The only thing I never leave home without is my mobile phone so something on there would be ideal.

We carry laminated Cyprus vaccination certificates in compartments of our phones ' covers. Also photos of same on phones. Have eudcc certs in a digital wallet but these are supposedly only for travel.

There's a government 'CovPass' app on the way which is designed for domestic use. It's been just around the corner for a while though.

Daughter said that from today Sports Direct will not allow digital proofs on phones and will require paper proofs. From today ID too.

I guess it was far too easy before for people to forward a digital image from one mobile to the next.

'Based on the decisions of the Council of Ministers, dated 2 and 7 July 2021, and aiming at the suppression of the dispersion of the virus SARS-CoV-2, as of the 9th July, in places where SafePass is required, individuals aged 12 and above must hold one of the following:

Certificate of vaccination with at least one dose of the vaccine. A period of three weeks must have elapsed from the day of the administration.
Proof that they have been infected with COVID-19 during the last six months.
Certificate of a PCR negative test or a negative rapid antigen test result, valid for 72 hours.

'The EU digital Covid certificate can only be used to travel across European borders but does not represent a valid certificate to access venues in Cyprus, according to the Deputy Minister of Research, Innovation and Digital Policy Kyriakos Kokkinos'.

As jeba has mentioned previously the CovPass App is used by Germany - I have seen posts on FB today stating the Cyprus CovPass App is available
on Playstore but the link takes you to the App for Germany. Cyprus has yet to release its equivalent version.

Thanks to all who responded. It looks like “wait and see”.

I was at Evangelismos Hospital yesterday waiting outside for my wife whilst my wife had her CT scan, and could see people offering their Safepass to be allowed to enter. The vast majority showed their phone and it was obvious many were not iPhones. So what were they using?

We had our various documents laminated yesterday - far quicker for me to show them than anything on my mobile.

Green Pass is a popular App for the SafePass.

Not sure if it was the Green Pass App or CovPass Cyprus App that was having issues - some people on FB had uploaded their vaccination details a few days ago and for some reason it no longer showed on their mobiles and they had to upload from their EUDCC again.

That was CovPass Cyprus I suspect as I had this issue and posted on the thread.

Still no sign of the Covpass app for Android phones as far as I am aware. Long gone are the days when I worked and had a new iPhone every couple of years.

I see the Covpass app for Android has finally arrived in the Google store. That was the good news. The bad news is that it was roundly castigated in the reviews. Hmm …

Not sure why - it is the simplest thing to do ... once you've gone back into eudcc.gov.cy and generated a new QR code with a TAN number (which wasn't on the original certificate when it first came out.

Yes done ours today as we travel in Europe quite a bit.

Download Covpass Cyprus on the Playstore. Don’t use scan. Go back to https://www.eudcc.gov.cy/ to generate a new certificate then instead of emailing or downloading, scroll down and there is an option to Import to Covpass. Click that and it will open up and populate your Covpass automatically

Decided to bite the bullet and was greeted by the sign that my device wasn’t supported (Samsung Galaxy A7 2016). So that’s that.

given the same message on my Samsung s6 but maybe because you don't have security on your phone (password/pin/picture).
