Translation of Proof of Vaccination – Covid 19 – ArriveCAN

As of July 5, 2021, the government of Canada will allow people who are eligible to travel to Canada to enter without the need to quarantine in a hotel, as long as they meet certain requirements.

One of these requirements is that the person show that he/she has received the full series of an accepted Covid-19 vaccine. To demonstrate this, it is necessary to upload the proof of vaccination to the ArriveCAN application and if this proof is not in English or French, it is necessary to upload its certified translation.

We can gladly help you with the certified translation of the proof of vaccination. We only need a scanned copy or photo of your document and we can give you a no-obligation quote, you may send it to

We will provide you the scanned translation and the original if necessary.

Accepted Vaccines for fully vaccinated status in Canada

  • Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine
  • Moderna COVID-19 vaccine
  • AstraZeneca/COVISHIELD COVID-19 vaccine
  • Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) COVID-19 vaccine – single dose

The certificate/proof/voucher must indicate that you received the vaccines at least 14 days before the date you plan to travel to Canada.

Apart from proof of vaccination, you must provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test result (no exemptions).  This must be a coronavirus molecular test.

It is important to review the specific requirements for each person, since the government has established different requirements depending on the circumstances of your entry to Canada. For more information you may visit the official link.
