Novel Coronavirus COVID-19
Effective date: March 13, 2020

At present, there is a need for responsible global action to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 novel coronavirus. 

For our part, the Province of New Brunswick has made the decision to suspend all non-essential international travel by its staff and representatives in order to avoid exposing any individual, community or nation to an undue or additional risk of infection or transmission of this virus.

To anyone intending to embark on an exploratory visit to our province:

Please do not embark on an exploratory visit at this time. If your travel arrangements are already made and cannot be changed at all, we apologize for any inconveniences that this creates. This measure is being taken in the interest of protecting you and all around you.  

Please note that due to the unpredictability of the situation, it is quite possible that some people or organizations will no longer be able to accommodate you during your visit, and that the objectives of the visit may not be achievable at this time.

We want to encourage you to be aware of the latest World Health Organization (WHO) advisories, including those related to international travel.

The New Brunswick Strategic Initiative stream is for French-speaking workers with the skills, education and work experience to contribute to New Brunswick’s economy, and who are ready to live and work in New Brunswick permanently.
