Canada removes testing requirement for fully vaccinated travellers from 1 April

Planning to travel to Canada? As of April 1, 2022, fully vaccinated travellers will no longer be required to take a covid-19 test prior to departure.  If you are travelling before 1 April, you will still be required to test prior to departure.

As a reminder, you may be randomly selected to undergo molecular covid-19 testing upon arrival in Canada. If this is the case, you do not have to undergo quarantine while awaiting the result.

For partially or unvaccinated travellers, the testing requirements for entry do not change. Unless otherwise specified, all travellers aged 5 years or older who are considered not fully vaccinated must provide proof of an accepted and negative covid-19 test before departure.

Lastly, all travellers must still submit their compulsory information via ArriveCAN. Failure to do so may result in a mandatory covid testing upon arrival and 14 days in quarantine, regardless of vaccination status. Travellers arriving in Canada by plane or cruise must submit information in ArriveCAN within 72 hours before boarding.
