Accepted documentation

In relation to COVID-19 travel forms, including the PEI Pass, see below for information regarding accepted documentation.

People uploading documents should cover/hide personal information other than names, address and date/s.

Vaccine record

  • A vaccine record is an official record, issued by a government, a health authority or a licensed health care provider (e.g. pharmacist, physician).
  • It contains at minimum: the name of the person vaccinated, the date they were vaccinated and the type of vaccine they received (e.g. Pfizer, Moderna).
  • Some jurisdictions also have online registries of people who are vaccinated. Please note: QR codes on their own are not accepted vaccine records; records must contain at minimum the individual's name, vacccine administered and administration date.

Photos or pdfs of vaccine records or online records of vaccination that contain at minimum the above noted information may be submitted with your PEI Pass application. PEI residents can opt to consent to a public health official verifing their vaccination in the PEI COVID Immunization Registry as part of their application for a PEI Pass. PEI residents who choose not to give this permission, will have the option to upload a copy of their own vaccine record with their PEI Pass application.

For general reference, for PEI residents, more information on requesting your vaccination record is available here.

It is an offence to knowingly provide false or misleading information to a public health official under the Public Health Act. Individuals may be ticketed $1,000 per offence.
