Vaccinated travellers will only need to register one time and will be able to apply for a multi-use pass.

In the case of residents of Campobello Island only, unvaccinated residents may enter the province and not isolate, provided that they follow federal rules. Like all New Brunswickers, unvaccinated residents of Campobello are restricted from accessing certain services, events, and businesses in New Brunswick such as restaurants where vaccination is required.


What vaccines are eligible to allow me to travel into New Brunswick?

Only Health Canada-approved vaccines provide exemption from mandatory self-isolation.


Do I need two doses?

You need a complete series of vaccination using Health Canada-approved vaccines to be exempt from the requirement to self-isolate for 14 days. (New Brunswick recognizes the recommendations of Canada’s National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI) on interchangeability of vaccines.)

The Pfizer-BioNtech, Moderna and AstraZeneca/COVISHIELD vaccines are offered in a two-dose series. The Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) vaccine is offered in a one-dose series.


What if I’m not vaccinated?

If you are not fully vaccinated, you must self-isolate for 14 days or until you receive a negative COVID-19 result from a test taken on Day 10 or later.


What if I cannot get a vaccine for medical reasons?

Individuals who cannot receive a vaccine because of a medical exemption are required to show proof of such exemption. If the medical exemption meets New Brunswick’s requirements, the individual would be exempt from the requirement to self-isolate. Public Health has provided primary health care providers with directions and forms for these individuals.


Do these rules apply to someone travelling through New Brunswick to another province or state?

Yes, anyone entering New Brunswick, regardless of their destination, will be required to register with the New Brunswick Travel Registry.
