How the new Covid certificate will work and what it will look like has been released by the Federal Office of technology.
It will be available as a mobile phone app or a hard PDF copy.
Both versions will have a QR code that will be able to be read by restaurant and bar managers and event organizers.
The certificate will be valid for 6 months after the second dose or recovered from Covid. It will work for 72 hours after a negative test.
The QR code issued by Switzerland will be compatible with a similar system being rolled out by the EU.
It will be operational by the end of the month.
