Provincial Travel Requirements

    The Government of Nova Scotia has declared a State of Emergency, and recommends limiting all non-essential travel outside the province.

    Provincial inspectors are onsite at Halifax Stanfield to remind people of the government’s travel measures and how to monitor for symptoms of COVID-19. Signage to this effect is in the domestic and international arrivals areas, as well as other strategic locations in the terminal building.
