The Govt of Canada has relaxed the travel requirements, beginning April 1, 2022, fully vaccinated travellers will no longer be required to show a negative Covid-19 test result in order to enter the country.
With these modifications, fully vaccinated individuals will be able to fly to Canada without having to take necessary pre-departure/on-arrival RT-PCR testing.
However, such travellers may still be subjected to random testing upon arrival, but they are not compelled to remain in quarantine while awaiting the results of their tests.
Previously, all travellers flying to Canada were required to produce a pre-departure Covid-19 test result in order to board a flight to Canada.
It must be noted that all travellers to Canada (regardless of how long you were away from Canada) will continue to be required to submit their mandatory information on the ArriveCAN app or website.
Entry requirements for customers travelling to Canada
Unvaccinated Foreign Nationals: There are limited exceptions from Canada’s entry restrictions for unvaccinated foreign nationals (e.g., essential service providers, some international students).
Unvaccinated Canadians: Unvaccinated or partially vaccinated Canadians will still be required to provide a rapid antigen test result for travel to Canada. The antigen test must be taken no more than 1 day prior to departure but results can be delivered in as little as 15 minutes.
It must be noted that to avoid a fine of up to $5,000! All passengers, even those who are fully vaccinated against Covid-19, must wear a mask throughout their entire travel journey except for brief periods while eating, drinking, or taking oral medication.
