What happens if I don’t meet the conditions of the PEI Pass?

Travellers arriving PEI who are not fully vaccinated with a PEI Pass must complete a PEI Self-Isolation Declaration before you arrive to a PEI entry point, and are required to self-isolate for 8 days, subject to a negative test on day 8, upon arrival in PEI.

If you do not meet the requirements of the PEI Pass (e.g. being tested at the point of entry), your pass may be revoked.

How long can I use my PEI Pass?

If you meet the definition of being fully vaccinated the PEI Pass is valid until there are no longer requirements to isolate after travel to PEI.

What if I am travelling with people who are not vaccinated or partially vaccinated, who are older than 11 years?

Unvaccinated and partially vaccinated individuals will be required to complete the PEI Self-Isolation Declaration and to isolate for the first 8 days in PEI, with a negative test result on day 8, and follow all other isolation requirements.

At the PEI point of entry, do I need a printed copy of the PEI Pass or is a screenshot on my phone accepted?

I am fully vaccinated. Can I travel to PEI from within the Atlantic Provinces without a PEI Pass?

For non-residents, in order to be exempt from isolation in PEI, you need a PEI Pass (or your Canadian provincial government-issued record of vaccination with QR code) before you arrive in the province. 

If you are not fully vaccinated you will be required to complete a PEI Self-Isolation Declaration form  and isolate for 8 days in PEI.

Is the PEI Pass needed to travel to other Atlantic provinces?

No, the PEI Pass is only valid for entering PEI.  The PEI Pass confirms you have been vaccinated against COVID-19.The PEI Pass can be used multiple times.
