New Travel Application Process

New Travel Application Process

Dear King’s students,

As of today, the Nova Scotia Safe Check-In process has changed for entry into the province. Travellers (including students) now need to wait for their Safe Check-In application to be reviewed and approved before being allowed to enter Nova Scotia.

  • Anyone planning to enter Nova Scotia from another province or country must first apply to travel through the Safe Check-In website.
  • Your request will be reviewed, and you will be contacted for more details before you can enter Nova Scotia. This process may take up to three business days.
  • If your application is approved, you will receive a confirmation letter that needs to be shown at the border to enter the province.

This process applies to all travellers allowed to enter Nova Scotia under current restrictions, including students entering the province to attend a post-secondary institution and Nova Scotia residents returning to the province.

Required documentation at the border

  • Anyone entering Nova Scotia between May 14 and May 20 can either show proof of the current NS Safe Check-In confirmation or the new approval letter, whichever you have completed.
  • Anyone entering the province on or after May 20, 2021 will be required to show your approval letter and a valid form of ID at the border.

If you are unable to produce the required documentation, you will be turned away at the border or will have to isolate at an approved accommodation, at your own expense, until you can make arrangements to return to your home province or point of entry into Canada.

For more information on travelling into the province, visit the Government of Nova Scotia website. We will share more information with you as we receive it.

Thank you,

Katie Merwin
Dean of Students
