Canada’s New Rules For Incoming Travellers Kicked-Off On Saturday & The Fines Are Huge

Visitors will need to have a quarantine plan ready!

Visitors entering the country will now have to be more prepared than ever, after Canada’s travel rules got a significant new update on Saturday.

As of November 21, all travellers coming into the True North are required to hand over contact information and a quarantine plan prior to their arrival.

This includes submitting details about where you’ve come from and where you’re ultimately going, as well as completing COVID-19 symptom self-assessments.

“This information is crucial to Canada's response to COVID-19,” explained the federal government in a notice.

Unless exempt, all travellers will also have to provide a detailed quarantine plan. Those who don’t may be required to check in with the government every day for two weeks, instead!

Now that travel restrictions have been updated, international visitors arriving by air are also required to submit their personal details before boarding their flight.

Those who are able to share their information via the ArriveCAN app can actually do it up to 90 days before flying. 

When all the necessary information has been submitted, travellers will get a “receipt,” which they’ll need to show to a border service officer upon their arrival.

Anybody who fails to submit their details won’t be denied boarding, says the federal government, but “enforcement action” ranges from verbal warnings to $1,000 fines.
