VIC Government Visitation API

Visitor Manager Central (VMC) API bridges the data gap between businesses and contact tracers using VMC Visitor Management System

All customers who are registered businesses and/or operate within Victoria, Australia and receive visitors are required to Contact Trace. VMC now offers this level of compliance as a 3rd party endorsed contact tracing system.
