Canada began working on vaccine passports for safe international travel
On August 11, 2021, the Government of Canada announced that it is collaborating with the provinces and territories to develop a proof of vaccination that will ease cross-border travel providing COVID-19 background information of travellers. As a more reliable and secure way to demonstrate travellers’ COVID-19 vaccination history to foreign and Canadian border officials, proof of vaccination credentials will also provide border officials with the vaccination history that they need to assess whether a traveller meets public health requirements and provide a trusted and verifiable credential for when they return home. Coming back to Canada, travellers will have to submit their proof of vaccination in ArriveCAN.
