Atlantic Canadians can now apply for the PEI Pass
Atlantic Canadians can now apply for the PEI Pass! Today is the first day so keep that in mind if you run into delays.
The PEI Pass is a multi-use form that will expedite entry to the province effective June 27 at the points of entry and confirms Islanders and travellers meet the appropriate criteria to be exempt from self-isolation in PEI after travel within the Atlantic provinces.
All Islanders, Atlantic Canadians and visitors who have been residing in the region for a minimum of two full weeks, and who have received at least their first dose of COVID-19 vaccine 21 or more days before entering PEI can now apply online at Apply for a PEI Pass for travel to PEI.
Applicants will need to include government-issued identification as well as proof of their vaccination record. Islanders needing their vaccine record can call 1-844-975-3303 or email email@example.com and provide their full name and phone number. Island parents or guardians will need to submit the vaccination record request on behalf of young people between ages of 12-15. Officials will follow up with applicants directly to fulfill their request.
Anyone 12 years old and over will need to present their own PEI Pass when entering the province. Until July 31, anyone 12-15 years of age is only required to have their first vaccination to be eligible for the PEI Pass; they do not need to wait 21 days after vaccination to apply for the pass.
Permanent residents of the Magdalen Islands will also be eligible to apply for the PEI Pass under the same conditions as Atlantic Canadians travelling to PEI. Magdalen Island permanent residents will also require proof of a negative COVID-19 test within 72-hours of arrival in PEI.
Canadians from outside the Atlantic region and the Magdalen Islands can begin applying for their PEI Pass as early as July 7.
Due to anticipated high volume of submissions, anyone travelling in early July or later are asked to defer their PEI Pass application until late June.
