Ottawa – Use ArriveCAN to provide mandatory travel information before and after your entry into Canada. It only takes minutes to help keep each other safe. Available for iOS, Android and online. The mobile app is free and is available in English, French and Spanish (displayed in the language of your device). It can save your contact and travel document information for travel at a later date. If you meet the definition of a fully vaccinated traveller and receive notifications and/or emails from ArriveCAN after entry to Canada about quarantine and Day-8 testing, please contact us. You may ignore these notifications.
All travellers, with limited exceptions, whether entering Canada by air, land or marine vessel, must use ArriveCAN.
You’ll need to submit your information within 72 hours before your arrival to Canada. If you don’t submit your information through ArriveCAN, you:
- may be denied boarding if arriving by air and may be denied entry into Canada if crossing at a land or marine border crossing (if you are a foreign national travelling for discretionary purposes)
Canadian citizens, permanent residents or persons registered under the Indian Act and foreign nationals eligible to enter Canada under another entry exemption (such as foreign work, study, compassionate grounds) will not be denied boarding or entry, but you:
- won’t be eligible for the fully vaccinated traveller exemption
- may face additional delays at the border for public health questioning
- may be subject to fines or enforcement action
