What is ArriveCAN to Canada ?

ArriveCAN to Canada is a simple online health declaration that must be completed by all travellers planning to enter Canada during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The form gives the Canadian authorities essential personal, contact, and health-related details of each person crossing the border to ensure smooth border procedures, as well as safety of the general public.

The Canadian Government made ArriveCAN available entirely online to minimize unnecessary contact of travellers with different authorities, as well as to speed up one’s travel registration.

Completing the form takes just a few minutes and can be done from home with the confirmation of a filled out ArriveCAN arriving by email.
