Key Points

  • Lifting of pre-entry testing requirements for fully vaccinated travelers beginning April 1, 2022


The government of Canada announced that fully vaccinated travelers would no longer need to provide a pre-entry COVID-19 test result before entering Canada starting April 1, 2022. Upon entering Canada, fully vaccinated travelers may still be randomly selected for testing. These travelers will not be required to quarantine while waiting for the return of their test results.

Entry requirements will not change for unvaccinated or partially vaccinated travelers. These individuals will still be subject to pre-entry testing and quarantine requirements.

Regardless of vaccination status, all travelers will still be required to submit mandatory information in the ArriveCan application before arrival. All travelers should check the pre-arrival checklist before departing for Canada.

What are the Changes?

Beginning April 1, 2022, the government of Canada will lift pre-departure entry testing requirements for fully vaccinated travelers. The government highlighted that these changes were made possible through high vaccination rates and strict vaccination requirements throughout the country.
