On February 28, 2022, Canada has announced a series of adjustments to the current border measures, representing the beginning of a phased easing of travel restrictions. If you have a temporary foreign status in Canada, you may enter the country by meeting the following conditions:
Fully vaccinated travellers:
Fully vaccinated travellers have to present a negative antigen test (it must be administered or observed by a pharmacy, laboratory, healthcare entity or telehealth service) within 24 hours of your scheduled flight or arrival at the border. As properly vaccinated travellers, you may still be randomly selected for PCR testing upon your arrival at the airport and/or border. If so, you are not required to self-isolate until the reception of your results.
Entry into Canada for people who meet the limited exceptions listed by the Canadian government will have to present a negative PCR test within 72 hours of your scheduled flight or arrival at the border. As unvaccinated travellers, you will be PCR tested upon your arrival at the airport and/or border and you will be required to quarantine for 14 days as well as get PCR tested again on the eight day of your quarantine. This is mandatory and there are significant penalties for anyone who does not follow this order. During this time, you won’t be able to leave where you are staying for any purpose. If you do not have a plan for self-isolation, including how you will buy groceries and access other essential services, please delay your travel until you have made one.
Children under the age of 12:
Children under the age of 12 who are not fully vaccinated and are travelling with a fully vaccinated adult are not required to undergo a 14-day quarantine upon arrival to Canada.
