1) DEPARTURE REQUIREMENTS FROM CANADA

All individuals departing from a Canadian airport to any destination are required to show proof of being fully vaccinated or providing a valid temporary exemption request along with a proof of a valid negative PCR COVID-19 test taken within 72-hours prior to departure. These requirements are in effect for all air travelers 12 years and four months of age and older.

3) INTERNATIONAL & TRANSBORDER FLIGHTS

The Canadian border is open to all American citizens and International individuals, who qualify as fully vaccinated. Proof of vaccination is required.

4) ENTERING CANADA BY AIR

Canadian and International travelers entering Canada must be fully vaccinated*. Pre-arrival COVID-19 testing is required. As of Feb 28, 2022, Antigen tests will also be accepted for fully vaccinated travelers provided they are completed one calendar day prior departure, and show a negative result. Molecular testing continues to be accepted and must be completed less than 72 hours prior to departure, or in situations where a prior antigen test prevented travel due to a positive result. A molecular test is also required for any individual who has tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 10-180 days.

*These requirements are in effect for all air travelers 12 years and four months of age and older.
