Businesses may choose to provide both SafeEntry modes, in order to cater to visitors who do not have a mobile phone and/or their identification cards with them.
SafeEntry with NRIC will enable businesses to clear people more quickly. It is recommended for high-traffic venues. It is also recommended for places where there is a high percentage of visitors who may not be digitally-savvy, do not have newer phone models, and data connectivity. In this mode, businesses need to allocate dedicated staff to perform NRIC scanning.
For workplaces (e.g. offices) where staff have their own mobile phones, SafeEntry with QR may be more suitable.
