Fully vaccinated foreign nationals may be allowed to enter Canada for discretionary travel. Foreign nationals who don't qualify as fully vaccinated will only be allowed to enter in specific circumstances: Find out if you can enter Canada
Travellers entering Canada by land, air or water, regardless of citizenship, must follow testing and quarantine requirements to keep everyone safe. Canadians must meet and follow all of the same entry requirements.
As of April 1, 2022, pre-entry tests are no longer required for fully vaccinated travellers entering Canada by land, air or water.
Travellers must use the ArriveCAN app within 72 hours before arrival into Canada. Pre-entry testing is still required for unvaccinated and partially vaccinated children 5 years of age or older, even if they are accompanying a fully vaccinated adult. Children who are less than 5 years old are not required to test, regardless of their vaccination status.
Randomized, mandatory COVID-19 testing is still in place, regardless of vaccination status, however, those who are randomly selected for testing will not have to isolate while they wait for their results.
You must submit a quarantine plan even if you are a fully vaccinated traveller. This is because your eligibility to be exempt from quarantine will be determined at the border.
If you do not meet the requirements of a fully vaccinated traveller, you will be either denied entry into Canada, required to quarantine for 14 days (or until you depart Canada).
You must demonstrate that you have a suitable plan for quarantine. You’re expected to make these plans, within your own means, before travelling to Canada.
You'll need to confirm you have a suitable place to quarantine where you:
- stay for 14 days or possibly longer
- have access to the necessities of life, including water, food, medication and heat without leaving quarantine
- can avoid contact with others who did not travel with you
- have no visits from family or guests
We recommend the following accommodations for quarantine plans.
