Arriving to PEI entry points without proper documentation will result in delays. A paper version of this form is available at entry points for those that do not have Internet access.

When should I complete this online form?

Complete one (1) form per vehicle or travelling party.

Once this form is submitted, any changes to your travel plans could result in a delay.

What public health measures are in place once I enter PEI?

Public health measures must be maintained at all of your points of interest while visiting Prince Edward Island. Everyone, including seasonal residents, should practice physical distancing, regular hand washing, staying home if feeling unwell, and contacting a primary care provider or calling 8-1-1 to discuss COVID-19 testing if  experiencing COVID-19 symptoms.
