Only one person can use the QR code. To do this, you must also present an identity document.

Starting this week, you can enter restaurants and cafes only by QR code… It confirms that the person has either recently been ill, or was vaccinated, or passed a PCR test and received a negative result. We will tell you what else is important to know about the QR code.

Do QR codes have an expiration date?

Yes, the validity period is indicated on the QR code itself. For those who have recovered from the disease, the QR code is valid until 180 days from the date of recovery, for those who received a negative PCR test – 72 hours from the moment the test result was registered in the laboratory.

Can townspeople vaccinated at the start of the 2020 campaign receive QR codes? Are they in the database?

Yes, if information about vaccinations is entered in the federal register of vaccinated, such people have the opportunity to receive a QR code. If the vaccination is made, but the QR code is not found, you must contact the technical support service of the federal portal, indicating that the vaccination was made in a private or public medical institution not subordinate to the Moscow Department of Health. If the vaccination was done in a medical institution subordinated to the Moscow City Health Department, including mobile vaccination points, you can use the service at / gr.

Is there a risk that people will start sharing their QR codes and one code will be used by groups of people?

There is no such risk. To enter an institution or an event, you must present not only a QR code, but also an identity document. The verifier will check the information contained in the QR code (initials and date of birth) with the data of the document, and will let the visitor through only after confirming the authenticity of the QR code. The likelihood of coincidence of initials and date of birth is minimal, which reduces the risk of a group of people using the QR code.

The data of users of city information systems are stored in the metropolitan Data Processing Center. It is protected in accordance with the requirements of the information security regulator.
