The app will now show two QR codes: one that allows access into events in the Netherlands, and another that will let people travel across the EU from July 1

Whoever has been vaccinated can show of their status from today in the Dutch government’s CoronaCheck app (remember to update the app!); meaning that they will be able to both attend large-scale events in the Netherlands, and travel throughout the EU without quarantining (from July 1). As reported by the DvhN.
People’s vaccination status will be displayed through QR codes, and each QR code will be unique to its owner. From July 1 the codes will be usable in other EU countries, too, however some countries are insisting on people having had their second shot before being allowed in without quarantine.
Anyone that has unfortunately had the Coronavirus in the last six months will also be able to show their non-infectiveness via the app. People that haven’t yet been vaccinated will also be able to show their negative test results when travelling.
The ‘travel’ QR code will show authorities in EU countries the type of vaccine that someone has had, and the dates of their inoculations.
