Canada to Europe using QR Code

Just wondering if anyone has traveled from Canada (Saskatchewan) to Europe and back using a QR code on a phone app as proof of vaccination? I'm heading to France, The Netherlands, Belgium and Ireland in July. My province doesn't issue cards as proof. All I have is the code. Will that be enough? Thanks!

We are in France. We brought printouts of our Government of Canada vaccine record listing our vaccines as the QR codes are not recognized here. Other then uploading the info for our flights, no one has asked to see our vaccine record.

How to get your Canadian COVID-19 proof of vaccination in SK

Access your Saskatchewan account:

  • look for your COVID-19 vaccine record

  • You can print it, download it, store it in the SK Vax Wallet app or view it on your mobile device

Just store the download as a PDF on your phone, storing it in the SK Vax Wallet app may not display the entire document.


"The Canadian COVID-19 proof of vaccination shows your vaccination history when you travel outside of and return to Canada. It's meant to simplify and facilitate border processing both in Canada and abroad. However, your proof does not guarantee entry to another country."

Not exactly on topic, but as a Canadian returning to Canada, I assume that a negative covid test is not required to return to your country?

You do not need a negative test to enter Canada, but there is a chance you will be pulled for random testing at the airport.

You also need to fill out the arrive can app and upload your proff of vaccine.
