Ministry of Health to Launch COVID-19 Vaccine App Within Days

The app will be similar to electronic passports already in use at airports worldwide, and will have a colour-coded display of your vaccination status.

The Ministry of Health and Population signalled that they will launch a mobile application that will display a citizen’s COVID-19 vaccination status, as an alternative to paper certificates, within the next few days. The app will carry the same fees as the paper certificate (EGP 100 for use within Egypt, and EGP 250 for travellers), which can be paid for by credit card over the platform.

Similar to electronic health passports already in use at airports worldwide, the app will display your status as either red for unvaccinated, yellow for those who have received a partial single dose of the vaccine, or green for fully vaccinated.

The app will be available for download on the Apple App Store and Google Play, and is expected to be released before the end of the month.
