How The Quebec Vaccine Passport Works For Visitors

Anyone who's planning to visit Quebec after September 1 is probably looking at all this vaccine passport news and is low-key freaking out about their prospects of going to events or eating at a restaurant.

But worry not, nervous traveller. It's actually a lot simpler than you think. Here's what you need to know if you're planning on visiting Quebec and can't get a Quebec-issued QR code proof of vaccination.

In a statement to MTL Blog, the health ministry explained that "for the time being, people coming from other provinces or countries will be able to present official proof of vaccination issued by the province or country of residence, as well as a proof of identity with an address outside Quebec, in order to have access to the places and activities covered by the deployment of the vaccine passport."

On its website, the government added that only the following vaccinations are approved in the province: Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca, Covishield, and Janssen.

In a nutshell, you'll have access to whatever activity you want so long as you have a photo ID and valid proof of vaccination from where you live.

It's that simple! Happy travels, folks.
