Travel Registration Program

Anyone entering New Brunswick from Atlantic Canada is no longer required to register for travel. 

Travellers from the Avignon and Témiscouata regions of Quebec are not required to register their travel, but registration is highly recommended so that border officials can easily determine if travellers are from these areas. This helps make screening faster at crossings and will keep traffic moving as smoothly as possible.

All other travellers must register their travel at least five (5) days before their travel into New Brunswick. They must have confirmation from the New Brunswick Travel Registration Program prior to arriving.

It can take up to 5 business days for your application to be processed.

Travel restrictions

Travellers entering New Brunswick may still be required to isolate, based on where they are travelling from and whether or not they have been vaccinated against COVID-19. For more details, click here.

The Government of Canada regulates the international border and travellers entering Canada. Travellers entering New Brunswick from international destinations are subject to federal quarantine regulations.

Travelling outside of New Brunswick

Within Canada, each province and territory have their own travel restrictions and isolation requirements to protect residents from COVID-19. Do your research before leaving so you are not caught unaware when you arrive.

If you must travel internationally, 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.

Some international destinations require proof of a negative COVID-19 test  result in order to enter the country. 

  • If you provided your Canadian Health Care Number (NB Medicare or another federal/provincial card) when scheduling or when tested for COVID-19 and were provided with a MyHealthNB registration sheet at your testing location, you may access and print your official test result online at myhealth.gnb.ca.
  • Please keep in mind that it can take a minimum of 48-72 hours after the test is administered before you can access your results. Results may take longer to access if a there is a situation (like an outbreak or alert-level change) that increases the volume of high-priority testing.

If you are not eligible to access your COVID-19 test results through MyHealthNB, please contact the hospital Health Records Department associated to your testing assessment centre with Horizon Health Network or with Vitalité Health Network.

It’s important to remember that if you leave the province, you are subject to rules in place at your destination(s), and rules in New Brunswick upon your return. For example, depending on where you travel, you may be required to-isolate for 14 days after you return to New Brunswick.
