frequently asked questions

NOTICE: Starting 30 October 2021, all travellers who depart from Canadian airports or travel on VIA Rail and Rocky Mountaineer trains, will need to qualify as a fully vaccinated traveller. This mandatory guideline will also apply to cruise ships travellers once the cruise season commences in 2022.

Do international destinations have testing requirements for air passengers and cross border travellers?

Many countries have testing requirements and only accept specific types of tests. It is important to plan and check for any health information, testing or other documentation required by your airline or travel destination. If you fail to follow your travel destination’s requirements, you may be denied entry and required to return home. Make sure that you receive your results before your flight departs and have documentation of your results to show the airline or border services officer.

How many days before my departure for air travel or cross border travel should I get tested?

Your COVID test for travel must be performed using a COVID-19 molecular polymerase chain reaction (or PCR) test and must be taken within 72 hours prior to your scheduled departure to Canada. Keep a copy of your test results with you during travel in case you are asked for them. Do not travel if you test positive. Immediately self-isolate, contact your Primary Care Physician and follow public health recommendations.

For example, if a passenger’s flight is at 1pm on a Friday, the passenger could board with a negative test that was taken any time on the prior Tuesday or after.

Do I need to get tested when I return home?

As per the Government of Canada travel health and safety guidelines, all travellers who are entering Canada and 5 years or older, must provide a proof of a COVID-19 negative molecular test result or proof of a previous positive test result taken between 14 and 180 days. All travellers who are entering Canada can be eligible to enter as a fully vaccinated traveller, regardless of citizenship. Canadians must meet and follow the same entry requirements. Travellers who qualify as fully vaccinated will NOT have to go through an on-arrival testing process unless they are selected for a mandatory randomized test.

People who provide essential services or those who qualify for other exemptions from quarantine and Day-8 testing, do not need to be considered as fully vaccinated travellers to enter Canada. To check if you qualify as a fully vaccinated traveller, click here.
