Sponsored by the State of New York, Excelsior Pass provides secure, digital proof of COVID-19 vaccination or negative test results. 

For New York businesses, Excelsior Pass is the fastest and easiest way to accept proof of COVID-19 vaccination or negative test results to ensure compliance with State reopening guidelines.

Similar to a mobile airline boarding pass, New Yorkers can store Passes digitally on their smartphones to present at participating businesses and venues.

As a business, you can use the Excelsior Pass Scanner app to validate that your employees or customers have valid Passes and are safe to enter your establishment. You are required to verify identification by matching the name and birth date on the Pass to a photo ID. In accordance with State reopening guidelines for your industry, you may also accept alternate forms of proof of vaccination or negative test results, like a CDC card or lab report. 
Download Excelsior Pass Scanner and be part of the safe reopening of New York State.

Have to Renew Every Month

The app works well enough, but having to renew monthly is tedious. Will probably delete the app due to this requirement.

Easy to use app!

Just downloaded app and added my wife’s and my pass to both our phones. Each pass shows expiration dates in mid-Sept 2021 and currently it’s mid-April and that’s perfectly fine with me. Expiration dates make perfect sense to me as experts learn more about the the virus, vaccine effectiveness period and if a booster shot update if needed. I don’t expect a “Lifetime Pass” like other app raters apparently do.
