As part of New Brunswick’s COVID-19 recovery effort, travellers entering New Brunswick from outside of Atlantic Canada 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.
If your travel is related to work, information on testing and modified self-isolation can be found here.

Travellers entering New Brunswick from outside of Atlantic Canada must have a confirmation from the New Brunswick Travel Registration Program. Most traveller registrations are rapidly confirmed.
