Return to Canada after being directed back to the United States
If you have been directed back to the United States, you may now return to Canada at an official port of entry to resume your refugee claim.
What you will need:
- travel documents (such as passport, visas)
- identification documents (such as driver’s licence, birth certificate)
- proof of vaccination against COVID-19 if you are fully vaccinated
- a negative molecular (PCR) test (if available as this will make processing easier)
If you are not fully vaccinated against COVID-19, you should have a 14-day quarantine plan.
Note You will have to take a molecular (PCR) test within 24hrs of your arrival in Canada. If the result is negative, you will still have to quarantine. If the result is positive, you will have to isolate. Public health officers will be on site to guide this process.
