CoronaCheck offers access to certain venues, activities and countries for people with a valid certificate.

CoronaCheck is the official app of the Netherlands for showing coronavirus entry passes. The app is developed by the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport. With this digital tool, you can create a certificate with QR code of your negative test, vaccination, or recovery. This allows access to venues and activities in the Netherlands, and international travel.

The app works like this:
Important: first make sure you are vaccinated or have tested for coronavirus.

• With the CoronaCheck app you can create a certificate based on your vaccination or coronavirus test results. You do this by retrieving your details via DigiD or via the retrieval code you received if you got tested at a test location other than the GGD.

• You can create a vaccination certificate from your vaccination, create a test certificate from your negative coronavirus test result, or create a recovery certificate from your positive coronavirus test result.

• The QR code of your certificate may be checked at the entrance of venues and activities. And also at international borders. This is proof that you have been vaccinated, have had coronavirus or did not have coronavirus at the time of testing.

• The app generates a certificate with QR code for use within the Netherlands and abroad. You can find both QR codes in the app. Are you visiting a venue or activity in the Netherlands? Show your Dutch QR code. Travelling outside of the Netherlands? Then use your international QR code.

Not “edge case” friendly

I got fully vaccinated in the USA because it took NL so long to get theirs in order. I tried to be a responsible global citizen by making the extra effort. But the app doesn’t accept CDC cards. 😭

I also have a positive antibody test from when I got Corona back in March 2020. Again, no way to upload it into the system. 😭

So, I have various proofs of immunity but no way of participating. And there’s no guidance on any FAQs of the sites I’ve look at about what I should do. Looks like I’m going to have to call the Rijksoverheid, which defeats the purpose of the app in my opinion. 🙃

I gave it two stars instead of one because it looks useful for people who fit perfectly within the user profile and use case they designed it for. Very “minimum viable product”.

Half of an effort

The app does allow you to upload vaccination records from GGD and create QR code’s. However it doesn’t allow you to upload test results from coronalab… I would call this a half effort, with confusing information/ documentation.

App is a joke

I traveled to the Netherlands caught Covid on the plane. Tested positive and am trying for weeks to get an international recovery document but needs this app to download the document. After calling in for so many times they placed me on a emergency ticket that takes 3-30 days to arrive before I can activate this app AND get to my recovery document. Rebooked my flight and still no email.
I need to fly out in 6 days if my pcr comes back positive I am F***. Lousy system and a horrible app
