A Wellington hospitality leader is trialling new Covid-19 technology.

The technology consists of a scanner that checks whether vaccine passports are valid.

Wellington Hospitality Leader Matt McLaughlin has been trialling the technology in his group of bars.

He told Heather du Plessis-Allan it's a bit slow and could cause some issues.

“For us to try and scan every single person that’s walking through the door, I’m scratching my head and just trying to work out how we’re going to manage it.”
