Maldives introduces a digital vaccine passport that can identify whether a person have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

Health Protection Agency (HPA) said the vaccination dosage and the COVID test results can be seen on portal.

This portal will ask for either the national identity card or passport number, and your phone number as well. Once an OTP is submitted, it can be accessed. To ensure privacy is protected, this portal can be accessed via the previous number provided by the individual to HPA.
