PEI Self-Isolation Declaration

The Self-Isolation Declaration form is for people who are not eligible for the PEI Pass and are required to self-isolate upon arrival/return to PEI, with testing. A new form must be submitted each time you enter/return to PEI.  

You must follow the self-isolation requirements in place at the time of arrival to the province.  Please visit COVID-19 Self-Isolation to learn more about the current isolation requirements before completing the declaration.

Who should complete this form?

Both PEI residents and non-PEI residents:

  1. If you are traveling from within Atlantic Canada or the Magdalen Islands and have not received at least one dose of a Canada approved COVID-19 vaccine at least 21 days prior to your arrival.
  2. If you are traveling from outside Atlantic Canada or the Magdalen Islands and are not fully vaccinated with two doses of a Canada approved COVID-19 vaccine.

The declaration form can be completed by an individual isolating on their own or one household travelling and isolating together.

Are children required to complete the form?

Children less than 12 years of age who are travelling with their unvaccinated parents will isolate with their families and are included in the family’s declaration.

Children less than 12 years of age who are travelling with their vaccinated parents, who have a PEI Pass and are not required to self-isolate upon arrival to PEI, do not need to isolate, or complete a declaration.

If children less than 12 years of age are travelling with both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals, see updated isolation requirements under “what does it mean to self-isolate?”

International Travel:  A PEI Self-Isolation Declaration does not grant you access into Canada. Before making plans to travel to PEI, you should first find out if you are eligible to enter Canada and review the COVID-19 vaccinated travellers entering Canada web page. If you are eligible to enter Canada, work your way through every step in your checklist to understand how to plan and prepare. Each step has specific requirements and exemptions that will follow through to later stages of your travel. Those returning from international travel must follow federal quarantine requirements.
