  • Complete a G2G Pass declaration before arrival, stipulating they do not have any COVID-19 symptoms and which jurisdictions they have been in the previous 14 days
  • Land arrivals to be met at the border checkpoint for a health screening and to have their G2G Pass declaration checked before proceeding to their self-quarantine premises.
