ValTrace App Registration: How to Register and Get QR Code through ValTrace App

ValTrace is the City of Valenzuela's official contact tracing app. It can also be used to schedule a vaccination appointment with VCVax. Learn how to register for an account here.

Valenzuela City has implemented the use of ValTrace as its premiere contact tracing system through Ordinance No. 783, Series of 2020.

The ordinance requires all Valenzuela City residents and non-residents to register for an account in the ValTrace web application and present the generated quick response (QR) code upon entry to establishments under the LGU's jurisdiction.

Individuals in Valenzuela City have been using ValTrace since October 5, 2020, in accordance with the city's "No QR Code, No Entry" policy. It was developed by the City Government of Valenzuela and AppCase Inc. It is one of several contact tracing apps developed by AppCase for several local governments.

Due to the five LGUs' interconnectivity agreement, a QR Code generated by the ValTrace app can also be used in Pasig City, Taytay, Antipolo City, and Mandaluyong City.

What is ValTrace App?

The ValTrace App, also known as the Valenzuela COVID-19 Tracking Application, is Valenzuela City's central contract tracking system, which residents must use and register for in order to receive a QR Code. Additionally, all establishments in Valenzuela are required to register with ValTrace in order to scan QR Codes of visitors upon entry.

Since November 16, 2020, through Ordinance No. 783, Series of 2020, the application has been fully implemented in all establishments in Valenzuela. It was developed by the Valenzuela City Government and AppCase Inc. to assist the LGU in its contact tracing efforts and COVID-19 prevention.

What is ValTrace QR Code?

The ValtTrace QR Code is the quick response (QR) image generated by the ValTrace app. Individuals receive their unique QR Codes after registering an account in the said app. The QR Code must be saved or stored in their phone or printed because they must present it upon entry into establishments.

When a registered establishment scans the QR Code, their personal information is transmitted to the Valenzuela Central Contact Tracing System to easily trace individuals who have come into contact with a COVID-19 positive.

What are the requirements to register for a ValTrace account?

Because ValTrace is part of the AppCase Inc. family of contact tracing apps, such as PasigPass and Antipolo Bantay COVID, an individual must provide their valid mobile number and email address. It will be used as part of their credentials when signing in for an account.

However, individuals must first have a reliable internet connection and a capable device with a browser to access the ValTrace web application.

Where to access ValTrace App?


To access the ValTrace app and register for an account in order to receive a quick response (QR) code, go to https://valtrace.appcase.net/. Although the app's homepage only shows a sign-up option for Valenzuela residents, non-residents can still register through the ValTrace web application.

A non-resident who wants to secure a QR Code to enter city establishments can also register for an account in PasigPass or Antipolo Bantay COVID, as the QR Code generated by both apps can be used in Valenzuela.

How does the ValTrace App function?

When the QR Code is scanned, the QR Code holder's personal information is automatically transmitted and integrated into the Valenzuela Central Contact Tracing System.

When the scanner is not connected to the internet or cannot connect to the internet in order to transmit the data collected to the Valenzuela Central Contact Tracing System, the software allows the scanner to store the registrant's personal information in an offline mode.

The person in charge or owner of the establishment is responsible for ensuring that the stored personal information, while the system was in offline mode, is transmitted to the Valenzuela Central Contact Tracing System within twenty-four (24) hours of data collection.

The City Government of Valenzuela will handle all information gathered from data subjects with the utmost confidentiality and will securely dispose of it thirty (30) days after it was collected.
