Update as of May 27, 2021
Prince Edward Island is following a 5-step reopening plan, with dates subject to change depending on COVID-19 cases in the region and vaccination rates in the province. Step 2, beginning on June 27, 2021 is scheduled to be the reopening to Atlantic travel. For more information on the 5-step plan, please see here.
Until the Atlantic Travel Bubble is reopened, all non-residents of PEI, including other residents of Atlantic Canada, must apply for pre-travel approval and must self-isolate for 14 days when traveling to PEI.
Once the bubble opens, you will need to fill out this Mandatory Self-Declaration form to travel to PEI from within the Atlantic Travel Bubble.
We hope that PEI is able to rejoin the bubble soon and we can safely meet with our Atlantic Canadian neighbours once again.
