  From November 1, the first stage of “step-by-step daily recovery,” a Korean-style “with COVID-19,” was implemented. The quarantine authorities apply vaccine certification and a so-called “quarantine pass” to some facilities for phased daily recovery. The “quarantine pass” is a device for the safe use and protection of unvaccinated people in facilities with a high risk of transmission of infection. Only those who have completed vaccinations with a low risk of infection, death, and severe infection, with some exceptions, are allowed to use designated facilities. 
  The government recommends the use of electronic certificates. You can use electronic vaccination certificates through the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s COOV app, Naver, Kakao, and Pass apps, paper certificates issued by community or health centers, and vaccination stickers. 
  The quarantine pass applies to high-risk multi-use facilities (entertainment facilities, horse racing, racing, casinos, indoor sports facilities, singing practice centers, and public baths) and vulnerable facilities (medical institutions, nursing facilities, severely disabled, dementia facilities, and senior citizens’ welfare centers).
  There are four methods for confirming a PCR negative of non-vaccinated people. A PCR negative confirmation text from the public health center, a paper certificate issued by the public health center, or a PCR negative confirmation issued from the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website. Voice confirmation letters and paper certificates are valid until midnight on the day 48 hours from the time of notification. 
  Meanwhile, vaccine pass systems are being implemented in 29 countries around the world, including Switzerland, Brazil, Austria, Thailand, and Singapore. Forged COVID-19 vaccination certificates are emerging as a social issue as they are being sold on the Dark Web. “In Korea, it is difficult to find such a fake vaccination certificate because we use a QR code or distributed ID-based authentication method that is valid only for 15 seconds to strengthen security.” said Yeom Heung-yeol, a professor of information protection at Soonchunhyang University.
  Quarantine authorities warn that receiving vaccine incentives with forged or altered certificates could result in imprisonment for up to 10 years. In addition, if another person’s vaccination certificate is used for certification purposes, he or she may be sentenced to up to two years in prison or a fine of up to KRW 5 million, in accordance with Article 230 of the Criminal Act.
