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 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.
