Removal of pre-entry testing for fully vaccinated travellers entering Canada

Effective March 31 at 21:01 (PDT), a pre-entry rapid antigen test will no longer be required for fully vaccinated travellers to enter Canada.

Pre-entry testing requirements were implemented by the Government of Canada earlier in the pandemic as part of a series of border and travel measures. Other policies such as the mandatory wearing of masks in airports and on aircraft, and proof of vaccination requirements for air travel, remain in effect. Fully vaccinated travellers entering Canada may still be randomly selected for a mandatory arrivals test, but are no longer required to quarantine while they await arrival test results.
