As part of New Brunswick’s COVID-19 recovery effort, everyone entering New Brunswick by land, air or sea must register so information can be collected to support Public Health.
You can register online or, if you do not have an email address, by phone before you travel. This helps speed up screening at the border. It also helps you determine what documents you will need at screening so that you can avoid being turned away.
Plan ahead to ensure that you’ll have everything you need before travelling to New Brunswick.
On this page
- Review the list of what you need to register and have the information ready.
- Register by phone or if you do not have an email address, online.
- If registering online, complete the fields as directed. Fields that must be completed are noted with an asterisk (*).
- Once your registration (online or by phone) has been approved, you will receive a confirmation number for your travel approval by email. Ensure that firstname.lastname@example.org is on your list of safe senders so that your confirmation email does not end up in your spam folder.
- You will receive approval within five business days from the date you applied.
- Print or have an electronic copy of your confirmation number on a mobile device so that you can present it when you arrive at a New Brunswick point of entry.
If you arrive at the border, airport or ferry terminal without a travel registration, you will be able to complete the registration process on site, but this will delay your travel. Registering online or, if you do not have access to internet, by phone before you travel will help limit delays, help you ensure you have necessary documents and reduce your risk of being turned away at the border.

Cottage/camp owners crossing to or from Témiscouata MRC, Quebec
If you need to travel to or from the Témiscouata region to close up and/or retrieve belongings from a camp or cottage, you may do so from Wednesday September 23rd until Wednesday September 30th only. If you are travelling for these purposes, you will be able to enter or return to New Brunswick without a requirement to self-isolate, as long as your trip is no more than 24 hours.
Anyone travelling for these purposes may do so for one time only and is required to register their travel through www.gnb.ca/travelregistration. When registering, select “Other” under “Reason for Entry” and explain where you are travelling. If your registration is approved, when entering New Brunswick, ensure you have all required documentation, including your travel registration and proof of ownership or rental of the camp or cottage. You are expected to go directly to and from the location, not make any stops and not visit businesses or interact with anyone not part of your immediate family or bubble while in the province where your camp/cottage is located. When returning to New Brunswick and vice versa, do not make any unnecessary stops.
Residents of the Atlantic provinces should register for “Atlantic Bubble – Single Use” when applying online.
Residents of the Atlantic provinces who regularly cross the border into New Brunswick as part of their daily commute to or from work, for medical treatment or to fulfill a custody order can complete a “frequent traveller pass” registration. Details on how to register for the frequent traveller pass are available below.
