Travel to Canada

Quarantine Plan

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there are travel restrictions that limit travel to Canada. Some travellers will be required to quarantine upon arrival.

Starting 11:59 pm ET on July 5, 2021: There will be exemptions for fully vaccinated travellers who meet specific conditions.

To be considered fully vaccinated, you must:

  • be eligible to enter Canada
  • have received the full series of an accepted COVID-19 vaccine or a combination of accepted vaccines
  • have received your last dose at least 14 days prior to entering Canada
  • upload your proof of vaccination in ArriveCAN

Accepted vaccines:

  • Pfizer (Comirnaty, tozinameran, BNT162b2)
  • Moderna (mRNA-1273)
  • AstraZeneca (Vaxzevria, AZD1222, Covishield)
  • Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) - single dose

If you received your vaccines outside Canada, proof of vaccination must be uploaded digitally in ArriveCAN and must only be in French or English, or certified translation into French or English.

Please note that fully vaccinated travellers will not need a post-arrival test unless they have been randomly selected to complete a Day 1 COVID-19 molecular test. There are no changes to the mandatory testing requirements for unvaccinated travellers. All travellers must still provide a quarantine plan and be prepared to quarantine, in case it is determined at the border that they do not meet the necessary requirements.

All travellers, regardless of vaccination status, will still require a pre-entry COVID-19 molecular test result.
