The SafeWA app is the WA government’s digital contact register system. More details can be found here. For now, international students need to check in with SafeWA and be able to show either an Australian COVID-19 digital certificate or a copy of their vaccination certificate from their home country (in English), and an accepted form of ID, such as a passport.
ServiceWA is a broader app that, when registered, allowed the user to access the SafeWA check-in and show proof of vaccination, all in one place and without the need to show additional identification. At the moment, the majority of international students may not be able to use the ServiceWA app due to the types of Australian ID documents requested. However, if a student has a WA Drivers Licence, this can be used alongside their visa and home country passport to access the app. If you are unable to access the ServiceWA app and need to gain and show proof of vaccination, visit COVID-19 Coronavirus: Getting proof of COVID-19 vaccinations
We encourage you to have your vaccination status recorded on the Australian Immunisation Register to access your digital vaccination digitally.
