The Canadian government’s requirements for cruise passengers visiting Canada are independent of Disney Cruise Line’s health and safety protocols. In addition to Canada’s requirements, all Disney Cruise Line Guests must adhere to health and safety protocols outlined on our Know Before You Go page. These requirements include COVID-19 vaccination and embarkation testing, as well as all other required documentation uploaded to the Safe Passage website.
Before sailing or entry into Canada, Guests must create a profile and upload required documentation to ArriveCAN, Canada’s entry requirements program. ArriveCAN is available via the web or as an app for iOS and Android. The mobile app is complimentary and is available in English, French and Spanish (displayed in the language of your device). Travelers can also submit their information by signing in online at Canada.ca/ArriveCAN
|UPLOAD DOCUMENTATION IN ADVANCE OF TRAVELING|
- Canada requires proof of full COVID-19 vaccination for travelers 12 years of age and older. Proof of vaccination and travel and citizenship documents can be saved in your ArriveCAN traveler profile before any planned travel. It is recommended that you download the ArriveCAN app and create a profile prior to sailing. If you’re traveling with others, you can include multiple travelers within your family in your ArriveCAN submission. Although you can upload digital versions of your documentation prior to sailing, it is recommended that you also have physical copies of these documents accessible while traveling.
- The Canadian government’s requirements for cruise passengers visiting Canada are independent of Disney Cruise Line’s health and safety protocols. Currently, Disney Cruise Line continues to require all vaccine-eligible Guests (based on US eligibility requirements) to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, as defined by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), at the time of sailing. This is a requirement for all Guests (US and international) ages 5 and older. The CDC also requires all unvaccinated Guests on 5-night and longer sailings to take a COVID-19 antigen test (paid for by Disney Cruise Line) on the ship the day before debarking.
|WITHIN 72 HOURS OF ARRIVAL|
- To enter Canada you will need to complete an ArriveCAN entry within 72 hours prior to arrival by air or land border. You will receive a QR code receipt to present when entering the country. After arriving, you will be required to complete an additional, separate ArriveCAN submission to receive a cruise-specific QR code receipt to be presented during embarkation. For voyages originating in a US homeport and ending in Vancouver, Canada, you will need to complete your ArriveCAN submission within 72 hours prior to embarkation.
- Creating a profile in ArriveCAN allows personal data such as your name, date of birth, travel documents and vaccination certificate to be retained, thereby reducing the time required for subsequent submissions. Information required by ArriveCAN includes contact information and travel details.
- Recent updates to ArriveCAN include:
- Fully vaccinated travelers and children traveling with a vaccinated parent or guardian will no longer be required to provide a quarantine plan upon entry.
- Fully vaccinated travelers and children traveling with a vaccinated parent or guardian will no longer be required to complete a pre-entry COVID-19 test for entry to Canada.
Per the Canadian government, all travelers, regardless of vaccination status, must wear face coverings throughout their entire travel journey while in Canada, including in cruise terminals, COVID-19 testing areas, airports and aircraft.
