YYT Safe Travels

Coming to YYT? Here’s what you need to know to ensure Safe Travels.

Travel Declaration Form for Arriving YYT Passengers

All travellers coming to Newfoundland and Labrador are required to fill out a Government of Newfoundland and Labrador travel form. Travellers from outside the Atlantic Bubble need to provide COVID-19 vaccine and testing documentation, as applicable. Parents/Guardians should fill out this form on behalf of children under the age of 16. All passengers arriving in Newfoundland and Labrador must follow Public Health Orders.

Temperature Screening

Effective September 23, 2020 CATSA (Canadian Air Transport Security Authority) implemented mandatory temperature screening for all passengers and non-passengers entering the secure area of the airport.

Any passenger with a temperature exceeding 38 ⁰C on both of two possible readings will not be permitted to enter the screening checkpoint at any airport in Canada.  This extends for a period of 14 days after the day of the elevated reading unless a medical certificate is provided certifying that the elevated temperature is not COVID-19 related.  Learn more.


In alignment with public health recommendations and Transport Canada requirements, everyone at St. John’s International Airport, including employees and travellers, must wear a mask inside the terminal building.

Exceptions include:

  • when a person is eating/drinking/taking medications
  • persons who have breathing problems or are unconscious
  • persons who are unable to remove the mask on their own
  • mask requirements for children

Who is Permitted in the Terminal Building?

Only passengers and employees are currently permitted in the Airport terminal building.  If a passenger requires assistance, ONE person may go inside to help.

Ground Transportation

Pick Up / Drop Off.  When picking up or dropping off a passenger at the designated curbside area, please stay in your car and do not leave your vehicle unattended.
