COVID-19 Advisory: We look forward to safely welcoming you. Please stay up to date on current Public Health alerts here. While the COVID-19 situation is constantly evolving, our website may not reflect current offerings. Please contact each business directly before making plans. 

Travelling from outside New Brunswick?

Starting July 1, travellers from across Canada and the U.S. state of Maine who have had at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine will be welcome to enter New Brunswick with no isolation requirement. Canadian and Maine travellers who have not been vaccinated will be permitted to enter the province but will be subject to testing and isolation requirements. Note: Travellers from all Atlantic Bubble Provinces will be permitted to enter without the vaccination requirement.

Travel Registration is required for all visitors arriving from across Canada and Maine, with the exception of those travelling to New Brunswick from the Atlantic Bubble Provinces or the Avignon and Témiscouata regions of Quebec. All restrictions will be lifted when the province moves to the Green level, expected August 2. Find detailed information on New Brunswick’s path to Green plan.

New Brunswick is in the Atlantic Standard Time zone

The Atlantic time zone (UTC/GMT -4 hours) is 4 hours behind London time and 5 hours behind European time. If you are traveling from Ontario, Quebec or Maine, don’t forget to set your watch an hour ahead!

We also participate in Daylight Savings Time, which means that on the second Sunday in March, the clock goes ahead one hour – until the first Sunday in November when the clock goes back one hour.

Sales Tax

The sales tax is called the Harmonized Sales Tax (HST) and is applied at a single rate of 15% to a base of goods and services. (This percentage is made up of 5% federal tax and 10% provincial tax.)
