The Costa Rican government is preparing the responsible and gradual opening of establishments starting in December, and a key tool is the COVID-19 digital vaccination certificate.
Thanks to the joint work between the Ministry of Health, the Costa Rican Social Security Fund (CCSS), the National Emergency Commission (CNE), the Costa Rican Institute of Electricity (ICE) and the Ministry of Science, Innovation, Technology and Telecommunications (MICITT ), the Costa Rican government will establish greater security in the digital certificate of vaccination, through a QR code.
The Government of Costa Rica has explained that similar parameters have been adapted to the digital passport system of the European Union (EU), in its digital certificate of vaccination against COVID-19. The QR code can only be validated through the official mobile application, which will be made available to the public for free. In addition, the QR code will also be available for printing.
On November 8, the certificate may be updated with the new parameters for those who already have theirs, by entering the following link and entering the assigned PIN: https://usuarios.ministeriodesalud.go.cr/.
The certificate will be necessary for Costa Ricans to enter restaurants, museums, shopping and entertainment centers, as of December 1, when the gradual reopening of establishments begins. In this way, those who have their complete vaccination schedule will be able to show the QR code so that it can be scanned by the establishments.
"Costa Rica is going in the direction of using QR verification or confirmation of vaccination, of the complete digital scheme for the different activities and eventually, yes, to be able to eliminate or reduce restrictions, that is the direction in which we are going," Carlos explained. Alvarado, president of Costa Rica.
Until October 12, the government registered more than 1,110,000 certificates sent, with an average of 30,000 digital certificates issued per day.
