Good news for travellers to Canada.

Are you fully vaccinated? If so, as of Friday you’ll no longer need to present a pre-entry COVID test to enter Canada.

The Canadian government announced earlier this month that it was dropping the test requirement, effective April 1. Note, though, that fully vaccinated travellers may still be selected for mandatory testing upon arrival, and partially or unvaccinated travellers aged 5 and older will still need to present a COVID test. You can read the full list of revisions and requirements here. (Note too that all travel information must be submitted via the ArriveCAN app or website.)

Although this is good news, it’s important to remember that COVID-19 is not yet finished with us. While many capacity limits and mask mandates have been lifted across Canada, rules may vary between provinces and territories, and inter-provincial travel restrictions may still be in place. We recommend staying up-to-date by checking local requirements before visiting (links to provincial and territorial requirements can be found on this page).

And finally, if you’re visiting Canada to attend trade and consumer shows, be sure to visit that event’s website for relevant updates.
