ArriveCAN App for Traveling to Canada
Click here to explore the most recent updates and travel restrictions in Canada!

The Canadian government created a free app to help provide mandatory travel information required for entering Canada. As of November 21, 2020, those traveling to Canada will be able to submit their required information digitally through the ArriveCAN app. In efforts to reduce the spread of COVID-19, all travelers are required to provide contact and quarantine information upon and after arriving in Canada.

The ArriveCAN App for Canadian Travel and Immigration

Many other countries have required everyone in their country to provide their quarantine information via an app and Canada created one similar. The new ArriveCAN app will be a significant step in stopping or reducing the spread of COVID-19 in Canada by sharing information with provinces/territories and law enforcement. The benefits of having this digital app include:

How to Use ArriveCAN

ArriveCAN can be available as a mobile app or you can log in online through any browser. ArriveCAN allows you to submit your information easily and securely before arriving in Canada. The app is available to download in the Apple App Store and Google Play. The app is available for iOS, Android, and online.

Do I Need to Use the ArriveCAN App to Enter Canada?

Unless your travel is exempt then you are required to use ArriveCAN or a paper form. Once you have entered Canada you will be required to keep it installed on your phone or keep your account active online throughout your quarantine. You will need to complete daily symptom reporting for the 14 days of entering Canada. Once the 14th day of quarantine is complete, then you can delete the app.

Pre-Entry Checklist: Traveling to Canada

  1. Pre-entry test
  2. ArriveCAN receipt
  3. Proof of vaccination
  4. Have quarantine plans if positive
  5. Upload travel document to ArriveCAN
  6. Prepare for possible arrival testing (air travelers)

I’m satisfied with the expertise and professionalism with which my case was managed and handled. I wanted to take this opportunity to thank the firm for its support. Although it has been a long process time due to Covid, Nadia has always been one of the first people to guide me step by step through the path during this stressful and unprecedented time. I strongly recommend VisaPlace to anyone seeking legal counsel.

Applying for my E2 Visa was so overwhelming for me. As soon as I engaged VisaPlace all that worry and stress was gone. They guided me through the entire process and set me up for success! I would 100% recommend using them for any of your Visa Needs.

I reached out to VisaPlace kind of on a whim, knowing that I needed to apply for permanent residency in order to stay with my spouse and our two cats. They were immediately and incredibly responsive, and almost instantly made me feel that I was dealing with professionals who cared about my case.

I reached out to them August last year, and today got the confirmation that my permanent residency has been approved. The people I worked with in VisaPlace stuck with me through the whole process, answering any questions and assuaging any fears that I had about the process, my application, or what I needed to do. Even when my anxiety made me snappy (I apologized immediately!) they handled my case and me with professionalism and compassion. Immigration is a stressful, scary process. I wanted professionals who knew the ins-and-outs so that I had the best chance of being able to come to Canada.

And now, I get to stay in Canada with my partner of nearly 10 years, and I couldn’t be happier. I would absolutely recommend this service to anyone who wants immigration help! A big thank you, especially, to Alejandra and Nadia for handling my case. I’m so lucky to have had your help!

Truly a very systematic, professional and pleasant team. My student file was with Gunjan and Yasmeen. They handled my case so well, always replied to all my queries and really did the best they can to keep me calm during the process. Yasmeen is truly very professional and completed my application in a timely and very organized manner. Would definitely recommend this organization to everyone.
