Travel to and from Canada: Restrictions Update

Travel restrictions have been updated on July 15th,  and here’s what you need to know if you are planning on travelling soon, including how revised rules, passport delays, Covid, and monkeypox restrictions may affect your trip.

What changes do you need to be aware of if you’re planning a trip?

– COVID-19 restrictions are gradually easing. As of June 20th, passengers are no longer required to be fully vaccinated in order to board a plane or a train in Canada. In other words, passengers no longer need to be vaccinated with two doses of an approved COVID-19 vaccine, or with one Johnson & Johnson dose.

– Federally regulated workers are also no longer required to be fully vaccinated, which means that airline and airport employees that were on unpaid leave due to their vaccination status will be able to return to work, which will make the pace of work at the airport faster. Mandatory random testing upon arrival in Canada continues off-site.

What stays the same?

– Vaccinated travellers returning from abroad must still meet entry requirements: using ArriveCAN to submit their travel and COVID-19 vaccination information within 72 hours before their arrival to Canada.

– Masks remain mandatory on trains or planes.

– Those who are unvaccinated must still meet extra testing and quarantine requirements. In case of failure to abide by requirements, they may face a fine of up to $5,000 or criminal prosecution. Outbound travellers must continue to abide by other countries’ entry rules. Vaccine mandates for cruise ship passengers and crews remain in place.
