COVID-19 vaccination passport
How to obtain your vaccine passport
Since March 12, 2022, the vaccination passport is no longer required in Quebec. It is still possible to keep your proof of vaccination in digital format in the VaxiCode application.
Presenting a proof of vaccination remains mandatory, according to federal government requirements, for travel within and outside Canada, by train, plane or cruise ship.
Download the QR code on the self-service portal
The self-service portal allows you to download your digital proof of vaccination. You’ll find two passport formats in the portal:
- one for use in Québec;
- one another for use outside the province.
Click on the following button to access the portal:
Once you have accessed the portal, you will be asked to provide identifying information, such as:
- First name and last name
- Date of birth
- Health insurance number
- Date of your first COVID-19 vaccination
- Brand name of the first COVID-19 vaccine you received
Youth from 12 to 14 years of age can also obtain their proof of vaccination by inserting their postal code into the self-service portal.
To confirm your identity and protect your personal information, you will be asked to provide the e-mail address or mobile telephone number provided at the time of vaccination to receive the download link.
QR code for use outside Québec
Consult the Instructions for travel within Canada or internationally (COVID-19) page for questions regarding the use of the QR code when travelling outside Québec.
Download the QR code from the e-mail or text message
A few days after your vaccination, you’ll automatically receive an email or text so you can download your electronic proof of vaccination.
You will receive it, if you provided a valid e-mail address or a valid cellphone number and your health insurance number when you made an online appointment.
Instructions for downloading it will be provided in the message. The procedure is also available on the Procedure for downloading digital proof of COVID-19 vaccination page.
Even if a digital proof is available, you are strongly advised to keep the paper copy of your proof of vaccination that you received after your vaccination.
