Canada Is Officially Getting Vaccine Passports By Early Fall

Canadians are getting a vaccine passport for international travel to prove they are fully vaccinated in the early fall, federal officials said on Wednesday, August 11.

Speaking via video conference, Immigration Minister Marco Mendicino said fully vaccinated Canadians will soon be sent a government document that will certify their COVID-19 vaccine history for international travel.

Ministers said they are working with provinces and territories on the “complex” matter and they believe this document is “another reason for Canadians to see the benefits of being fully vaccinated.”

Details on the document will include a person’s COVID-19 vaccination history, including what type of vaccine they received and the date and location the doses were administered. It will be made available to all Canadian citizens, permanent residents and temporary residents living in Canada.

The document does not guarantee entry into other foreign countries, Mendicino added.
