Effective April 1, 2022 at 12:01 AM EDT, fully vaccinated travellers will no longer need to provide a pre-entry COVID-19 test result to enter Canada by air, land or water.

Fully vaccinated travellers seeking to arrive in Canada before April 1, 2022, must still have a valid pre-entry test.

And, fully vaccinated travelers who are selected for mandatory random testing may be required to take a COVID-19 molecular testing upon arrival. Travelers selected for mandatory random testing are not required to quarantine while awaiting test results.

For travellers who are not fully vaccinated, the pre-arrival testing requirements remain the same. You must continue to provide a negative COVID test result before to arrival in Canada and submit the test result in ArriveCAN within 72 hours before boarding.

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 pre-entry COVID-19 test result.

All travellers continue to be required to submit their mandatory information in ArriveCAN before their arrival in Canada. Travellers who do not complete 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.
