As an international traveler, you must fulfill several requirements before your departure and after your arrival in Canada. There are some exemptions for fully vaccinated travellers, please see below for more information.
Prior to travelling to Canada, you must prepare a credible 14-day isolation/quarantine plan that demonstrates that you have a suitable place to isolate or quarantine, with access to necessities including food and medication.
You are also required to test negative for COVID-19 within the 72 hours before travelling and provide documentation of your negative laboratory test result to the airline prior to boarding a flight to Canada.
Not fully vaccinated travellers will need to take an additional COVID-19 test after they arrive in Canada before they continue to their planned place of quarantine. Anyone who tests positive for COVID-19 will be relocated to a designated quarantine facility, or other suitable place of quarantine.
If you do not have an adequate self-isolation plan, you will be directed to government-managed accommodation where you can safely complete your 14-day self-isolation.
