Complete a travel questionnaire on Canada’s ArriveCAN app 

 

Set up account on and use the ArriveCAN app or website to provide mandatory travel information on and after your entry into Canada. It only takes minutes to help keep each other safe.
 

  • ​​Fill out the ArriveCAN questionnaire, upload proof of vaccination – a photo of the CDC Vaccination Record Card works – and certify your COVID status, as well as a reason for travel.

  • You’ll be asked to come up with a quarantine plan just in case; but vaccinated, COVID-negative travelers won't need to use it.

Once in Canada, Be Prepared

  • Be aware of local restrictions and health guidelines — and pack plenty of masks

  • Many hotels and other tourist destinations are still not 100% back to pre-pandemic levels of services — so expect modified services, fluctuating prices, and closures - it's best to plan ahead and book early.
