Covid certificate app finally available

Ljubljana – The national app for the Covid-19 digital certificate has been published in the Apple and Google application stores almost three weeks after the EU-wide digital Covid certificate scheme entered into effect. Almost 12,000 users have activated the app so far, the National Institute of Public Health (NIJZ) said on Tuesday.

Slovenia started issuing digital certificates on 24 June, but initially they were only available on the national e-health website, which requires a digital identity to access.

In early July, the NIJZ then sent out paper copies of the digital certificate to around 900,000 residents.

Since last week users can download the eZVEM app to their mobile devices running Apple’s IOS or Google’s Android operating system. To activate the app, they need one of two national digital identities.
