Nunavut’s common travel area with NWT restored

Nunavut’s Chief Public Health Officer is reopening Nunavut’s side of the Common Travel Area with the NWT today.

All travellers to Nunavut from the NWT, who have not been outside the NWT or Nunavut for the past two weeks, can now travel to Nunavut without completing 14 days isolation.

  • Travellers already in the NWT waiting in isolation who wish to return to Nunavut earlier than their scheduled return date, must complete a Common Area Traveller’s Declaration form and send it to cphotravelrequests@gov.nu.ca. They also must wear masks in public spaces and observe physical distancing for the duration of their return trip.
  • Travellers from Nunavut to the NWT must follow the NWT’s public health measures and isolation requirements. For more information, contact Protect NWT.
  • Nunavummiut who enter the NWT on exemption to live, work, study or for compassionate reasons and wish to return to Nunavut must also complete a Common Area Traveller’s Declaration form and send it to cphotravelrequests@gov.nu.ca.
  • Nunavummiut already in the NWT, who wish to remain in the NWT for their entire scheduled trip, will be subject to the GNWT’s public health measures. For more information contact Protect NWT at 8-1-1 or 1-833-378-8297.
