On July 12, 2021, the President of the Republic announced that the health pass would be requested at the entrance of public places, shops or establishments welcoming vulnerable people.
Two solutions will then be available to you: draw your paper document certifying that you have been vaccinated, or use the QR Code of the TousAntiCovid application. These two methods are not right for you? If you have an iPhone, we have another solution for you.
The Health Pass on Apple Wallet, it’s possible
Among the Apple applications pre-installed in the iPhone, Wallet is undoubtedly one of the most practical on a daily basis. Formerly called Passbook, this app is a digital wallet.
It makes it possible to group together, in the form of cards, plane or train tickets, transport tickets, hotel reservations, cinema tickets, payment cards, loyalty cards and even, in some countries. , official documents such as identity card or driving license.
In some European countries, Apple Wallet can also accommodate a card displaying the QR Code of the Health Pass. Unfortunately, in France, the government does not allow this manipulation, probably to encourage the French to use the TousAntiCovid application.
But nothing is impossible, also other services allow to create a Health Pass card in Apple Wallet. And since we are nice, we give you the method to do it.
How to create a Health Pass card in Apple Wallet
To successfully integrate a Health Pass card into Apple Wallet, two steps are necessary. The first is to retrieve the QR Code, the second to import it into Wallet via a third-party service.
Collect the health pass
The first step is therefore to collect your European health pass. You can choose to take a photo of the document given after your vaccination on which your QR Code appears.
If you have been vaccinated for several months, this method does not work since the first documents did not include a QR Code but a 2D-DOC format does not work here.
If you are in this situation, go to the Ameli website to retrieve your certificate. You will then obtain the QR Code at the top right of your certificate. You just have to photograph it by zooming in on the QR Code. If you retrieve the attestation on mobile, just take a screenshot.
There you have it, the first successful step.
Create an Apple Wallet card
Once your QR Code has been retrieved, go to an Apple Wallet card creation service. According to U.S, CovidPass is the most interesting solution since it is accessible from any browser. Furthermore, the data is not uploaded to a server and the source code is publicly available.
Here is the method to create an Apple Wallet card with CovidPass:
- Go to the CovidPass website
- Choose the photo of your QR Code
- Choose a background (this will be the color of your map)
- Accept the general conditions of use
And There you go, your Apple Wallet card is available in your digital wallet! You can also add other cards, for example one for each family member. These will be available on the same row as your Health Pass card. And if you have an Apple Watch, this card is of course accessible directly to your wrist. So is not life beautiful ?
