The derogatory travel certificate can now be made from your smartphone. After pedaling in semolina for several days at the start of the implementation of the certificate, the Interior Ministry has just put its official platform online to generate the digital document.
The platform allows you to fill in your personal information (surname, first name, date of birth, address), and to choose a reason for traveling before generating a PDF file of the certificate, on which is present a QR Code that forces of the order will scan in the event of a check. The service is accessible from any mobile web browser. Here’s how to generate a digital version of the certificate on iPhone and Android.
1. Go to the Certificate Generator
Open the web browser of your smartphone and go to the generator of the special displacement certificate set up by the Ministry of the Interior.
Little tip: On iOS or Android, we advise you to add the site to your favorites, or, even better, to add it to your home screen, in order to access it more quickly.
2. Fill in your information
The certificate generator offers the same fields as on the paper version of the document. Enter your first name, last name, date and place of birth, postal address, and select a reason for leaving.
The date and time of exit, which are compulsory, are normally entered automatically when the certificate is generated. If you are preparing the certificate for a future release, change these values.
Once all the information has been entered, click on the button Generate my certificate. The file of your certificate, in PDF format, should be available for download.
3. Save the certificate
After pressing the button used to generate your certificate, your browser will offer to give a name and save the file on your device.
If you use Chrome, which is our case, the PDF will be saved in the directory Downloads of the smartphone.
There are two ways to view the document: through the browser, or by accessing the backup directory directly using a file manager like Google Files.
From Chrome, press the main menu, represented by three small dots, and enter the menu Downloads. You should find all the downloaded files there, including your certificate.
If you use a file manager, Google Files on our device, browse the directories of your smartphone to find the one concerning Downloads. The certificate of derogatory displacement should be present there.
After pressing the button Generate my certificate, the document should be displayed immediately in the browser if you are using Safari mobile. You should therefore save the item to keep it locally on the iPhone.
To do this, press the share button, represented by a square with an arrow coming out, deploy the share sheet by sliding it upwards and press Save to Files.
Choose a name by tapping on the default name (unknown), validate it, choose a backup directory on your device and press Record. In our case, we opted for On my iPhone> Downloads.
You will then only have to open the iOS document manager, Files, then navigate to the selected backup directory to display your derogatory travel certificate.
