Is it just us or does it feel like we’re back in 2020? With cases on the rise all around the world, it’s no surprise that countries have readjusted their travel restrictions. While there are plenty on the map that are still open to visitors, the rules are ever evolving. The same can be said when it comes to current travel rules to and from Canada as well. But not to fret, because we’ve got you covered with the updated procedures to follow.
Current Travel Rules From Canada
For those who’ve left Canada and wish to return, they must ensure that they’re fully vaccinated. This means having received at least two doses of one eligible vaccine or a mix of two eligible vaccines.
The PCR test must be taken 72 hours prior to the flight to Canada. This applies to all travellers above five years old. Positive PCR test results can be shown in the event that the individual had COVID-19 and then recovered, with no symptoms at time of travel as long as the test was taken 11-180 days ago.
Details about vaccine proof, quarantine information and travel updates must be uploaded onto the ArriveCAN app. The app is free and all details have to be saved on there 72 hours before the flight to Canada.
Make sure you have outlined and details quarantine plan in hand, in case of positive PCR results upon landing. Travellers may also be asked for quarantine for two weeks if they’re not qualified as fully vaccinated.
Travellers can also register in advance at the Canadian airport of landing to be tested before leaving the airport. You may be asked to quarantine while awaiting test results, so it’s best to plan and prepare in advance before making the journey.
