- It is not necessary to present a negative screening test before boarding.
- Wearing a mask remains mandatory at all times on planes and trains, except when eating and drinking.
Restrictions elsewhere in the world
- It is important to find out about the entry rules of the countries where you plan to go. While many no longer require a screening test on arrival, others still have several rules in place, including quarantine.
Upon arrival in Canada
- From 1er April, fully vaccinated travelers will no longer need to be tested for COVID-19 to enter Canada.
- However, random drug tests will be carried out among travelers entering the country. Those who will have to submit to these tests while being fully vaccinated will not have to observe quarantine while awaiting the result.
- Proof of vaccination will be required.
- All travelers will need to continue to enter their information into the ArriveCAN mobile app prior to their arrival in Canada.
- Partially or unvaccinated travelers who enter the country after the 1er April must continue to respect the rules currently in force for screening tests.
