ArriveCAN features a Canada travel health form that must be completed by incoming passengers. This is a quick and simple process.
Once the ArriveCAN form for Canada has been submitted, the applicant will receive a receipt via email.
The receipt must be shown to a border services officer upon arrival in Canada. Travelers can present their ArriveCAN receipt in the following formats:
- In the email they received
- Papy copy
- Via the ArriveCAN app
ArriveCAN must also be used after arriving in Canada. Travelers must log into the system and confirm that they have arrived at a government-authorized hotel or the place they specified they would complete the mandatory quarantine period.
Arrivals must also complete self-assessments using ArriveCAN each day until the end of their quarantine. This is a quick survey that asks if they are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19.
From July 5 2021, travelers who have been vaccinated against COVID-19 will be able to upload their proof of vaccination via ArriveCAN. Depending on the circumstances, this might exempt them from quarantine, having to stay at a hotel for 3 nights, and/or being tested on day 8 after arrival.
