International Travel into Canada

All fully vaccinated travellers can travel to Canada for non-essential purposes. Pre-arrival COVID-19 testing is not required for fully vaccinated travellers. Check if you qualify as a fully vaccinated traveller

Entry to Canada is determined by the Government of Canada and may come with restrictions depending on which country you are travelling from. Learn more from the Canada Border Services Agency or check out the resources below. 

​​For partially or unvaccinated travellers who are currently allowed to travel to Canada, pre-entry testing requirements. Unless otherwise exempt, all travellers 5 years of age or older who do not qualify as fully vaccinated must continue to provide proof of an accepted type of pre-entry COVID-19 test result:

  • a valid, negative antigen test, administered or observed by an accredited lab or testing provider, taken outside of Canada no more than one day before their initially scheduled flight departure time or their arrival at the land border or marine port of entry; or
  • a valid negative molecular test taken no more than 72 hours before their initially scheduled flight departure time or their arrival at the land border or marine port of entry, or
  • a previous positive molecular test taken at least 10 calendar days and no more than 180 calendar days before their initially scheduled flight departure time or their arrival at the land border or marine port of entry. It is important to note that positive antigen test results will not be accepted.

All travellers continue to be required to submit their mandatory information in ArriveCAN (free mobile app or website) before their arrival in Canada. Travellers who arrive without completing their ArriveCAN submission may have to test on arrival and quarantine for 14 days, regardless of their vaccination status. Travellers taking a cruise or a plane must submit their information in ArriveCAN within 72 hours before boarding.
