More About Covid in Canada

Do you need a Test/Medical Certificate?

Proof of a negative test result, taken within the previous 72 hours, must be provided on departure. Travelers may instead provide documentation of having recovered from COVID-19. This will require proof of a positive test result, taken at least 11 days before departure and not more than 180 days before departure. Proof of negative molecular test result or recovery must be uploaded to the ArriveCAN application. Further information on the testing requirements, such as types of tests accepted, can be found at https://travel.gc.ca/travel-covid/travel-restrictions/flying-canada-checklist/covid-19-testing-travellers-coming-into-canada?utm_campaign=gac-amc-covid-20-21&utm_source=travel-covid_travel-restrictions_flying_&utm_medium=redirect&utm_content=en#getting-tested

Do you need to be vaccinated?

Travelers who present a valid international certificate for full vaccination against COVID-19, with the use of an approved vaccine, do not require an essential reason to enter and are exempt from quarantine requirements. Vaccinated travelers must still provide a pre-departure test and may be randomly selected to be tested on arrival. Travelers are also required to have a suitable quarantine plan in place for 14 days as a precaution, even when seeking the fully vaccinated exemption. Proof of vaccination must be uploaded on the ArriveCAN application. The final dose must have been administered at least 15 days before departure and supporting documentation must be in English, French, or with a certified translation.

Do you need to wear a mask?

Face masks are recommended in indoor public spaces, enclosed environments and recommended when social distancing rules cannot be respected. Face masks may be required depending on the province or territory visited.

What additional documentation is needed?

The ArriveCAN application must be downloaded to submit proof of vaccination, negative test result, previous recovery, contact information, and quarantine plan. All necessary information must be submitted at least 72 hours before arrival.
