The Australian Government is to develop a vaccine passport for international travel.

Tourism Minister Dan Tehan told Australia’s Radio National the system will allow Australians to upload proof of vaccination to a QR code linked to their passport.

The scheme will be trialled by diplomats travelling to certain countries, which could include the UK, the US and Asian countries.

Last week the government said it would have a system in place within weeks to enable recognition of vaccination status for international travel as vaccination rates rise.

“We want to make sure we’re ready for people to be able to travel again,” Mr Tehan said.
