Travel notices

Refer to the Government of Canada Travel and Tourism for the most up-to-date travel restrictions, exemptions and advice.

Preparing for travel

COVID vaccinations are highly recommended to keep you and our community safe. Unvaccinated individuals carry a greater risk of contracting COVID-19 and experiencing more severe symptoms than those who are vaccinated.

  • Your COVID vaccination status may affect your travel restrictions. New Brunswick Public Health strongly recommends travellers receive vaccinations prior to travel for your own health and safety.
  • New Brunswick Public Health recommends that you bring a copy of your COVID-19 vaccination record with you to UNB. In the event of exposure or an outbreak, New Brunswick Public Health may request proof of vaccination to determine specific health directives for you, such as self-isolation requirements.

International travellers

Anyone coming to New Brunswick from outside Canada must follow all directives from the Government of Canada and the Province of New Brunswick. Contact the UNB International Student Advisor’s Office for more information on international travel to New Brunswick and studying at UNB.

Entry into Canada falls under federal jurisdiction and any inquiries should be made to the Government of Canada. See Canada Border Services Agency or call 1-800-461-9999 for more information.


Self-isolation information

Travellers may be required to self-isolate based on your vaccination status.

Self-isolation is an important requirement in the prevention of the spread of COVID-19. Self-isolation means to stay at home, monitor yourself for symptoms, avoid physical contact with others and follow local public health authority advice.

A well-designed self-isolation plan will ensure your isolation period is as comfortable and hassle free as possible.

A self-isolation plan should include the following details:

  • The dates you will be self-isolating.
  • The address where you will be isolating.
  • How you plan to travel safely to your new home in New Brunswick.
  • How you will order and receive food and supplies while you are in isolation.
  • Include an active contact phone number during your isolation period so health authorities may reach you if required.
