The IATA Travel Pass application is a mobile application that enables you to create a digital version of your test results on your mobile phone. You can then securely share your passport details with clinics so that they can verify your digital identity before sending back your electronic COVID-19 test result. The test result is then validated against the travel rules enabling you to show and share evidence that you are fit to fly.
To use the IATA Travel Pass application, you need to have an ePassport and a compatible phone. Once downloaded, you can create your digital identity and load your flights by:
When you scan the QR code at the clinic this establishes a secured connection between the IATA Travel pass app on your phone and the clinic. This connection is used for the clinic to validate your digital identity and send the test result directly to your phone when the lab completes the analysis. The application then validates the test result against the travel rules for your itinerary to let you know if the test meets the requirements. You can then show the attestation that you are ready to fly to your airline to speed up the airport verification process.
For this pilot phase you can only use the IATA Travel Pass for an individual traveller not group bookings. Work is underway with IATA to roll out a family and group travel feature in the app.
Open your passport on the photo page. Scan the two lines of characters at the bottom of the page as prompted by the app. If you are unable to scan these lines, you can also manually enter the details. Then place your open passport behind the phone so it can read the passport chip.
If the application does not manage to read the passport chip, then move the passport to a different place at the back of the phone. The chip is not in the same place for all passports, this is why you may need to move the phone/passport to be able to read the chip in your passport.
You need to have an ePassport. If your passport does not contain an electronic chip, then you cannot use the application yet. If your passport has a chip, it will have a chip icon on the lower half of the front cover.
If you have a French or German passport you will be unable to use IATA Travel Pass as the legislation in your country does not allow anyone outside of specific government entities to access the data on the passport chip.
You can load your flights by clicking on the "YOUR FLIGHTS" section of the App by selecting your airline and your day of travel.
All your information is stored on your phone, and IATA doesn’t save or even have access to your passport data.
When you share your data with a partner, the data is encrypted and sent directly from your phone to the partner. They only use it for the purpose you agree to and delete the data afterwards.
No one can access or share your data except you. If you choose not to share your data, no one will have access to it. When you choose to share your data with a partner, only that partner has access to that data.
A government or state cannot access any customer database, as there is no central database. Governments and immigration authorities will only receive information upon the passenger’s consent and action to share the necessary information to fulfil the travel requirements of the destination.
The app doesn’t contain a tracking code and the solution has been designed to support the opening of international travel by allowing travelers to share COVID-19 testing or vaccine information simply and securely.
