Fully Vaccinated Travelers Don’t Need a Covid-19 Test to Enter Canada Starting April 01
Currently, fully vaccinated travelers entering Canada must present proof of a negative result from a professionally administered antigen test.
But from April 1st, Canada will no longer require fully vaccinated travelers to provide a negative Covid-19 test result to enter the country. This is a major relief from Canadian Health Minister Jean-Yves Duclos who announced relaxations in travel rules for fully vaccinated passengers.
Entry requirements for passengers travelling to Canada
Unvaccinated Canadians and other travelers who are exempt from the vaccine mandate will still need to provide a negative rapid antigen or molecular test, or an accepted form of proof of recent infection to enter the country. 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.
Incoming tourists will still need to be vaccinated to visit 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.
Fully vaccinated travelers may still be selected for random testing on arrival but are not required to quarantine while awaiting their test results.
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.
