Covid Travel Guidelines

Travel Guidelines for Visiting DDL in 2022

If you live in Canada, you can now travel freely to Dorje Denma Ling without any testing or other Nova Scotia entry requirements. However, if you are travelling by plane, train or boat, you must comply with the Canadian Government conditions, which require you to be fully vaccinated and wear a mask at all times.

Foreign nationals, including U.S. citizens, wishing to enter Canada for nonessential purposes must also comply with the Canadian Government’s travel guidelines. If you are travelling to Dorje Denma Ling, you must:

  • Be fully vaccinated at least 14 days before entering. The vaccine must be one approved by the Canadian Government.
  • Create an online ArriveCAN account and fill out the electronic form at least 72 hours before entering. You will receive a confirmation receipt which you will be asked to show at the border.
  • Upload proof of vaccination to the ArriveCAN app. However, you are still required to bring proof of vaccination with you as well.
  • Have a quarantine plan in place, just in case.
  • Have your passport. (If you are a dual citizen, you will need both your U.S. and Canadian Passports.)
  • Not have any symptoms when you get to the border, otherwise you could be refused entry.

A pre-entry test is no longer required for fully vaccinated individuals. However, you may be randomly selected for testing. You will not be required to wait for results of the test, but can continue to your destination.

If you are travelling with children who are unvaccinated, or you have recovered from Covid, other pre-arrival testing requirements apply. Please refer to this page on the Travel Canada website for more detail.

Businesses and nonprofit organizations still have the option of implementing their own set of restrictions. If you are coming to Dorje Denma Ling, please review our current Covid-19 health and safety guidelines before coming.
