Greece Launches App for the Storing of Covid-19 Health Documents
Greece has launched the Covid Free Gr Wallet, a new app allowing citizens to easily save Greek and European Covid-19 certificates on their mobile phones and tablet devices.
Already available on App Store and Google Play, the app aims to facilitate the storage of digital health certificates for vaccination, recovery and testing as well as simplify verification procedures.
Storage is possible both for the EU Digital Covid Certificate and national certificates, and for as many people the user wants – for example the whole family.
The app is similar to other digital tools already used by citizens to store and verify documents including air boarding passes and event tickets.
Users can save their documents on the Covid Free Gr Wallet simply by scanning their QR code or by uploading them in a pdf format.
“We simplify the storage of digital Covid certificates on mobile phones, making the daily lives of citizens easier,” Digital Governance Minister Kyriakos Pierrakakis wrote on twitter.
The new app is also available through the website https://covidfree.gov.gr.
