The Canadian government has eased its COVID-19 entry requirements for certain travelers.

Key Points:

  • As of April 25, fully vaccinated travelers are no longer required to provide a quarantine plan to enter the country.
  • Travelers who are ages 5 to 11 and not fully vaccinated but are accompanied by a fully vaccinated parent, stepparent, guardian or tutor will not be required take pre-entry COVID-19 tests to enter the country.
  • Travelers who are 12 and older, not fully vaccinated and eligible to enter Canada must continue to take a pre-entry COVID-19 test to enter the country.

Additional Information: Travelers continue to be required to submit required documentation in the ArriveCAN app within 72 hours before arrival in Canada. Fully vaccinated travelers who do not submit information through the app will not be exempt from Canada’s COVID-19 entry requirements. More information regarding Canada’s border measures and entry requirements is available here. Individuals can check if they qualify as fully vaccinated in Canada here.
