People returning to British Columbia from other countries will be required to present self-isolation plans or they will be placed in quarantine.

The government says it will have officials in place starting Friday at Vancouver International Airport and major land border crossings to make sure the plans are complete.

Premier John Horgan says forms will be available online to help travellers, and those arriving by air will be given the document.

The document can be submitted online or completed on arrival, and must indicate how returning travellers plan to keep themselves in self-isolation for 14 days.

If the plan is not approved, Horgan says those travellers will be taken to a ``quarantine site'' until they can get arrangements in place.
