Vietnam will issue its own digital passport for the Covid-19 vaccine which will contain personal data and vaccination information.
A document from the Ministry of Health stated that the vaccination passport would include the holder’s name, date of birth, nationality, disease against which the vaccination was carried out, number of vaccines, dates of vaccination, type of vaccine, vaccine manufacturers and a serial number.
The data would be encrypted and presented via a QR code which expires 12 months after its creation.

The health ministry said the information displayed on the passport would match WHO and EU documents.
So far, 77.2 million people in Vietnam have received their first vaccine against Covid-19, 63 million have received two and 1.3 million have received three.
Vietnam has accepted vaccine passports from 78 countries and territories, according to the Foreign Ministry. Australia, Belarus, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States have accepted the vaccination passport from Vietnam, while it is in “examination” in other countries.
