Government of Canada Lightens Border Measures

The Canadian government has announced the easing of certain travel restrictions for international travellers visiting Canada. As of February 28th 2022 at 12:01AM (Standard Eastern Time), the following updates will take effect:

  • The government of Canada will be easing the on-arrival testing for fully-vaccinated travelers. However, travelers will be randomly selected for arrival testing. Travelers will no longer be required to quarantine while waiting for test results
  • There is no longer a requirement to quarantine if you are fully vaccinated.
  • Unvaccinated foreign travelers will not be permitted to enter Canada unless they meet one of the few exemptions. To understand if you can enter Canada, if you are not vaccinated, please use the Canadian government travel wizard.
  • Travelers will now have the option of using a COVID-19 rapid antigen test result (taken the day before of their scheduled flight or arrival via a marine or land border). Alternatively, travelers can still take a molecular test no more than 72 hours before their scheduled flight or arrival at a land or marine border).
