Currently, fully vaccinated travelers to Canada must abide by the country’s COVID-19 testing requirement to cross the border, but that rule is set to change in a few days.
As of April 1, 2022, fully vaccinated travelers will no longer be required to provide a pre-entry negative COVID test result, according to News10 NBC. There is a catch: fully vaccinated travelers may have to take a COVID-19 molecular test if they are selected for mandatory random testing. If selected, travelers are not required to isolate while awaiting test results.
Partially vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals over five years old are still required to show proof of a negative test before crossing the border.
Everyone going to Canada must provide information through the ArriveCAN app. Otherwise, pre-entry testing is required regardless of vaccination status.
