March 17. In a significant move towards reopening borders, the Canadian government today announced discontinuing all Covid-19 related testing requirements for fully vaccinated international passengers arriving in Canada. The new rules are applicable for travelers entering the North American country by land, air, and water.
The current rules mandate all incoming international passengers to provide a pre-entry COVID-19 test result regardless of their vaccination status. Negative antigen and molecular tests were taken no more than 24 or 72 hours, respectively, before the scheduled flight departure time were accepted. A positive antigen test taken between 10-180 days before departure is also accepted.
From April 1st, 2022, passengers recognized as “fully vaccinated” by Canada need not provide a test result on arrival. You can check if you qualify as a fully vaccinated traveler under Canadian law here. However, the mentioned requirements remain unchanged for partially or unvaccinated travelers.
