PEI Resident Self-Isolation Plan Registration

All permanent PEI residents who must travel outside of PEI at this time are being asked to register their plan for self-isolating before their return to  the province. This is to help individuals develop self-isolation plans that meet self-isolation requirements.

Everyone should read the Self-Isolation page prior to completing this registration.

Isolation for 14 days upon arrival in PEI is a legal requirement and it is an offence not to isolate.   

Who should be registering their isolation plan?

All permanent PEI residents who must travel outside of PEI are asked to register their self-isolation plan in advance of returning to PEI. It is recommended to complete this form before leaving PEI where possible, or a minimum of 72 hours before your planned return to PEI, to allow time for assessment and to develop alternative isolation plans if necessary.

This form is intended for members of a single household who are arriving together and isolating together at the same location

  • If people from different households are travelling and/or isolating together in PEI, each household is required to submit their own form.
  • Members of a single household going to different self-isolation locations must complete separate forms for each location.

Approved PEI resident work-isolators, registered rotational workers  and registered truck drivers  do NOT need to complete this form provided they are following their respective guidance. PEI residents travelling off-Island for the purposes of parenting time and following the co-parenting guidance  are not required to complete this form.

PEI residents travelling same day off-Island and planning to be eligible for the same-day travel self-isolation exemption  are not required to complete this form.  

Non PEI residents, including seasonal residents of PEI, do not complete this form – they must complete the pre-travel approval application which includes submitting a self-isolation plan.

What information do I need to include in my self-isolation plan registration?

The self-isolation plan registration must include how you will be meeting the self-isolation requirements, including:

  • Who will be isolating
  • Isolation location
  • Support person during isolation
  • Plan in place for food and medications
  • If you are isolating in a completely separate location or in a shared residence with individuals who are not self-isolating
  • Agreement to be tested
  • Other relevant details about your plan (e.g. if there will be people in the residence who are not isolating, how many people will this be; or how you are reaching your self-isolation location)

Personal information on the Self-Isolation Plan Registration Form is collected to assess the isolation plan of PEI residents returning from outside of the province in order to decrease the risk to public health in Prince Edward Island during the COVID-19 public health emergency and to enforce travel restrictions. This collection is authorized by the Public Health Act, section 56 and the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act, section 31. For more information contact Justice and Public Safety at or 902-368-5025 (Monday to Friday 8am-8pm; Saturday and Sunday 8am-4pm).

What happens after I register my isolation plan?

Following registration, there will be a review process. Based on the information provided, if:

  • there are no questions identified regarding your plan, you will receive a confirmation within 24 hours of submission
  • there are questions regarding your plan, someone will follow up with you within 48 hours

After completing the form:

  • Please bring a copy of self-isolation plan review letter (or your confirmation email if have not yet received a letter) with you to the PEI point of entry to help speed up your entry process.
  • Please note: You can return to PEI even if you have not received a response to your self-isolation plan submission. If you haven't yet received a response, someone will contact you after your arrival. Please ensure you review the current self-isolation requirements prior to your return to PEI.

What happens if I arrive at the PEI entry point and have not submitted my isolation plan?

If you have not completed a form before your return to PEI, you will be asked to provide information about your isolation plan following your arrival.
