What To Expect Onsite

Visitors aged 12 years 2 months and over attending a Geelong Arts Centre event will need to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination as a condition of entry.

Proof of vaccination can be shown via your digital certificate on the Service Victoria app.

To add your COVID-19 digital certificate to the Service Victoria app, you’ll need to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and have the latest version of the Service. You’ll also need either:

  • Medicare online account or Individual Healthcare Identifier linked to your myGov account
  • and the latest version of the Express Plus Medicare app installed on your phone.

You can add your COVID-19 digital certificate to the Service Victoria app from the Express Plus Medicare app or your myGov account. The easiest way is through the Express Plus Medicare app.

Once you’ve added your COVID-19 digital certificate to your Service Victoria app, it will show proof of vaccination each time you check-in.

If you don’t have a smartphone or are unable to use one, there are additional non-digital proof of vaccination status options available including a printed copy of your Australian Immunisation History Statement or of your digital vaccination certificate from myGov.

If visitors have a medical exemption they must show evidence of their exemption to enter the premises.
