Travel and COVID-19

Staying close to home can help contain the spread of COVID-19. Some provinces and territories may have extra regulations about interprovincial travel. Please check your destination for any COVID-19 related domestic travel information.

All international travellers returning to British Columbia are required by law to self-isolate for 14 days upon their arrival and complete a self-isolation plan. To learn how to complete the self-isolation plan and what to do when you return to B.C. see:

The Province, through Service BC, will follow up with international travellers in self-isolation. Service BC may contact returning travellers by phone or text message to ensure they have the support they need to complete their mandatory self-isolation.
