Traveling to Canada
Government of Canada has announced the removal of all COVID-19 entry restrictions, as well as testing and isolation requirements for anyone entering Canada, effective October 1, 2022. Masking requirements on planes and trains are also lifted.
All people can continue to do their part to protect themselves and others, and reduce the spread of COVID-19, by getting vaccinated and boosted, using high quality and well-fitted masks where appropriate, self-isolating if they have symptoms and self-testing if they can.
Additionally, travelers will no longer be required to submit their quarantine and vaccination information through ArriveCAN. This program was created by the Government of Canada as a secure and user-friendly electronic tool to help travelers comply with safety and security measures at the border. It is available as a mobile app or by signing in online.
Travelers are still encouraged to use the optional Advance Declaration feature in ArriveCAN to save time at the airport by submitting their customs and immigration declaration in advance of arrival. This feature is available to travelers whose first point of arrival in Canada is:
Vancouver international airport (YVR)
Toronto Pearson international airport (YYZ) (Terminals 1 and 3)
Montreal-Trudeau international airport (YUL)
As a reminder - travelers must satisfy a Canadian border services officer (BSO) that they meet the requirements for entry into Canada. Travelers should ensure that they have a valid and up to date passport; it is the only universally accepted identification document. Additionally, a valid visa or Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) may be required.
