Victorian Government QR Code Service

About the Victorian Government QR Code Service

The Victorian Government QR Code Service is free for all Victorian businesses, organisations, clubs and events. These records help contact tracers.

Victoria moves to further relax COVIDSafe settings from 11:59pm on Friday 9 April 2021.

These changes are designed to balance getting Victorians back to doing the things they love while keeping in place measures to protect all that Victorians have worked so hard for.
