COVID-19 Travel Tool Kit

The Public Health Agency of Canada has published a Travel Tool Kit which contains more detailed guidance for travellers entering Canada who are:

  • unvaccinated or partially vaccinated;
  • fully vaccinated (rules effective as of July 5, 2021 at 11:59 p.m. ET)

Unvaccinated or partially vaccinated travellers

All testing and quarantine requirements remain the same for unvaccinated or partially vaccinated travellers.

Vaccinated travellers

As of July 5, 2021 at 11:59 p.m. ET, individuals who are eligible to enter Canada and are fully vaccinated may be eligible for exemption from quarantine and reduced testing requirements. These exemptions apply to both air and land travel into Canada.

To be considered fully vaccinated, travellers must:

  • Have received the full series of a vaccine—or a combination of vaccines—accepted by the Government of Canada (Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca, Janssen (Johnson & Johnson)) at least 14 days prior to entering Canada;
  • Provide proof of vaccination digitally using ArriveCAN;
  • Submit proof of vaccination in English or French (or a certified translation from original language into English or French).

Pre-departure, vaccinated travellers must:

  • Plan their quarantine (in case border agents judge that they do not meet exemption requirements);
  • Pre-register for an arrival test;
  • Within 72 hours prior to arrival in Canada, take a COVID-19 molecular test and use ArriveCAN to enter their information.

Travellers who meet all entry requirements and are fully vaccinated are exempt from:

  • Quarantine;
  • Government-authorized hotel stay (air travellers);
  • Day 8 test.
