What changes in the check of the European Digital Covid Certificates (EUDCC) through the CovScanCyprus application

The Deputy Ministry of Research, Innovation and Digital Policy informs citizens and businesses that the CovScan Cyprus application has been adapted on the basis of the provisions of the Quarantine Law Decrees of the Ministry of Health (No 10 dated 18.2.2022 and No 11 dated 23.2.2022).

As of February 24, 2022, the application allows the user to select the place/premise on the basis of which the check regulations corresponding to each location will be automatically uploaded. More information on check regulations can be found in this table:

The check through the application is performed by scanning the QR code indicated on the certificate. Depending on the measures applied to the place/premise, the CovScan Cyprus application will present the following results:

– Green: Certificate is valid.

– Red: Certificate is not valid.

The new upgrade aims to simplify Safepass checks and provide new possibilities for the confirmation of the authenticity of the European Digital Covid Certificate (EUDCC).

It is noted that citizens will not have to re-issue/renew their certificate since this upgrade concerns only the CovScan Cyprus application.

It is recalled that for the use of the above functions it is necessary to update the CovScan to version 1.5.7.

Frequently asked questions about how the application works can be found at: EUDCC Portal.
