International travellers entering Canada
It is the responsibility of the traveller to remain aware of and to comply with the standards for vaccination, testing, or documentation required by their travel destination, stop-over locations, and travel provider.
The Government of Canada regulates the international border and travellers entering Canada. Travellers entering Canada by air, regardless of citizenship, must meet COVID-19 requirements:
- Canadians must meet and follow all of the same entry requirements
- All travellers must use ArriveCAN within 72 hours before your arrival to Canada
- Fully vaccinated travellers must use ArriveCAN to qualify for the exemption from quarantine and testing
Under certain circumstances, you may be exempt from some requirements.
Travellers entering New Brunswick from international destinations are subject to federal testing and quarantine regulations.
If you must travel to or from an international destination, please visit the Government of Canada’s travel advice and advisories page for your destination(s) regularly to verify travel health recommendations and safety and security information.
Please note: Take home rapid test kits provided by provincial health authorities or those not undertaken by accredited laboratories may not be deemed acceptable by airlines or destination countries as proof of a negative COVID-19 test. You should confirm prior to any international travel where proof of a negative COVID-19 test is required.
