The Tasmanian government is working with multiple other states and territories on something that will introduce benefits for people who are fully vaccinated.
The state was likely to see a way of providing vaccination status programmed in to the Check-In TAS app.
"Representatives from Tasmania, Queensland and the Northern Territory have been working with the ACT as the lead agency to consider the merits of extending the capability of Check-in Apps to support vaccine status policy options. These discussions are continuing," a government spokesperson said.
Another spokesperson said a "piece of work" would be provided to National Cabinet, and that if it was acted on would provide "potential exemptions for fully vaccinated people".
It was understood the Tasmanian approach to allowing exemptions would look similar to what the federal government had recently started trialling in anticipation of an eventual return to international travel.
It was unclear as to when the app was likely to start rolling out across Tasmania.
Federal Trade Minster Dan Tehan on Sunday said work was well underway for an app to be used as a travel vaccination passports, with trials beginning imminently.
He said the app would work similarly to check-in apps that are already used at businesses across Tasmania and Australia.
Mr Tehan said the international travel vaccination app had been distributed to places including the Pacific Islands, Singapore, Japan, South Korea, the UK and the US.
"This week the QR code that we've developed, which gives you that vaccination certification system, we're sending that out to our overseas posts so they can start trialling that," he said.
"[A] QR code will be linked to your passport which proves your vaccination certification.
"We're beginning the plan ... for that opening up."
The development came days after the NSW government revealed it was working on an update to its check-in contact tracing app that would see it capable of providing a local business vaccination passport of sorts.
The app would display an individuals vaccination status upon check-in at a venue.
It was understood the app that would become available in Tasmania was likely to be part of a national roll-out.
