VaxiCode application

General notice

The vaccination passport is no longer required in Québec. It is still possible to keep your proof of vaccination in digital format in the VaxiCode application.

VaxiCode is an application for citizens to download and read the full content of their own QR code, present their proof of vaccination, keep it in a digital wallet and show it when required.

You are not obliged to use the VaxiCode application to show your proof of vaccination. You can also show a PDF or a printed copy of your QR code.

VaxiCode is the only application for the public that is recognized by the gouvernement du Québec. The application is free and secure.

VaxiCode can be downloaded for free on the usual platforms.

Technical requirements

The application VaxiCode, intended for public use, must be downloaded on a smart phone or a tablet. It is free and available in the App Store for Apple devices and on Google Play for Android devices.

For the application to work on Apple devices, you must have an iPod Touch, an iPhone 6 or an iPad with iOS 11 software installed. Any more recent version will also work.

For the application to work on Android devices, version 8.1 or later must be installed.

A standard Internet connection is necessary for downloading and updating the application. It is important to keep on top of updates to ensure the application is working properly and displaying the most recent QR code, for example in the event of a change in public health recommendations. By updating the application, the latest public health recommendations will be included. It is strongly recommended to connect the device to the Internet so updates are done automatically every day. For Apple devices, automatic updates may be delayed for up to 24 hours. You can force an update by installing it manually.

The latest version of the application is 1.3.13 on iOS and 1.3.13 on Android.

Data protection

Your data is protected. When you register a proof of vaccination in VaxiCode, it is saved with encryption. VaxiCode does not communicate with the Internet and the proof never leaves the application, which acts as a secure wallet.

Verification by VaxiCode Verif

Vaccination passports have not been required in Québec since March 12, 2022. The proof verification function in VaxiCode Verif has been disabled.

Recommended use

For additional security, during a verification, it is recommended that you show only your QR code, hiding any other information. Present the QR code for your most recent dose.

Scanners in other jurisdictions can read your QR code when you’re travelling.
