What to do if you cannot check-in using a QR code

COVID-19 check-in cards are now available for people who are unable to scan a QR code when visiting a venue. Create, print and use your personalised card to check-in.

Apply for a check-in card

Service NSW has introduced the COVID-19 check-in card for customers who have difficulties scanning QR codes.

Customers just have to show their personalised unique code to the business they are visiting to scan. If you know someone who has difficulties using QR code check-in, it takes less than 5 minutes to help them generate a unique code.

Apply

For any further inquiries, please visit Service NSW or call 13 77 88.

Check-in card procedure for business operators

Service NSW has introduced the COVID-19 check-in card for individuals having difficulties scanning QR codes.

For any further inquiries, please visit Service NSW or call 13 77 88.
