The Greater Moncton International Airport Authority (GMIAA) is ready to welcome back passengers to the Greater Moncton Roméo LeBlanc International Airport (YQM) as New Brunswick and Canada ease measures to re-open travel and tourism, safely and in a coordinated manner.  At YQM we remain committed to the health and wellness of our passengers, visitors, business partners and employees throughout the ongoing changes. 

Our goal is to provide you with regular updates on new developments or changes in YQM’s operations. We recommend that you follow our social networking platforms to get this information more quickly: Twitter : @MonctonYQM and Facebook : @MonctonYQM

Stay safe!


When coming to the Greater Moncton Roméo LeBlanc International Airport, and until further notice, only travellers and employees are permitted inside the terminal building (with the exception of travellers needing special assistance, and vehicle rental and COVID testing centre customers). This measure is to allow proper physical distancing in the terminal building. Mask use remains mandatory.


Mandatory COVID-19 Vaccination for Air Travellers

To board your flight and if you are 12 years of age or older, you must:

  • have received at least 2 doses of an accepted COVID-19 vaccine or a mix of 2 accepted vaccines
    • or at least 1 dose of the Janssen/Johnson & Johnson vaccine
  • have received your second dose at least 14 days prior to the day you travel
  • have no signs or symptoms of COVID-19

All travellers must be fully vaccinated, with very limited exceptions to address specific situations such as emergency travel, and those medically unable to be vaccinated.


Canadian COVID-19 Proof of Vaccination

The Canadian COVID-19 proof of vaccination is a reliable way to show proof of your COVID-19 vaccination history when travelling internationally and within Canada.

This proof:

  • was developed by provinces and territories, with support from the Government of Canada
  • is a recognized, trusted document that has been shared with our international partners
  • shows your COVID-19 vaccination history
  • can be verified after you upload it into ArriveCAN (on your return to Canada)

This proof does not guarantee you entry to another country. Before you travel, you must check the rules of your destination country and the countries you transit through.

You’ll need to show your proof of vaccination when travelling in Canada by air. The new Canadian COVID-19 proof of vaccination may be used to show that you meet this requirement.

Provinces and territories may also ask you to use this proof to access non-essential services.

How to get the Canadian COVID-19 proof of vaccination

You should confirm prior to any international travel where proof of a negative COVID-19 test is required.

COVID-19 Proof of Vaccination Checks for Passengers by a Canadian Air Transport Security Authority (screening officer)

Canada’s proof of vaccination requirement, following Transport Canada regulations, applies to all passengers 12 years of age and older departing from Canadian airports. The regulations come into effect on October 30, 2021, and require that passengers bring official proof of their vaccination status to the airport. Beginning the same day, screening officers will conduct random verifications of passenger vaccination status at the Canadian Air Transport Security Authority (CATSA)’s preboard screening (PBS) checkpoints. Information on acceptable documentation, accepted vaccines and exceptions to the vaccine requirement are available here.

Conducting the Proof of Vaccination Verification

When requested to do so by a screening officer, passengers will need to present a valid record of their COVID-19 vaccination status or COVID-19 test result. Screening officers will ensure that acceptable forms of proof of vaccination status and COVID-19 test results are presented in accordance with the new federal regulations. As part of their duties, screening officers will ensure that the name on a passenger’s boarding pass matches the name on the passenger’s record of vaccination status.

A passenger who does not have their proof of vaccination or COVID-19 test result, has an unacceptable form of proof of vaccination status or COVID-19 test result, or refuses to provide proof, will be denied access to the sterile area and will be directed to return to their air carrier check-in desk by screening personnel.


Proof of Covid-19 Vaccination

Some New Brunswick businesses will require proof of vaccination to access non-essential services.
