The Canadian government implemented border controls to lessen the possibility of bringing COVID-19 and new variants into the country and spreading them there through international travel.
The Canadian government has declared that it will expand its current border controls for visitors. It is anticipated that requirements for visitors to Canada will be in place through at least September 30, 2022.
Additionally, until mid-July, all airports will maintain the suspension of required random testing for passengers who meet the criteria of being completely immunized. The COVID-19 testing for air travelers outside of airports to choose test provider stores, pharmacies, or by virtual appointment is now on hold as the Government of Canada moves forward with its planned transition. The pause was put in place on June 11, 2022, and it is allowing airports to concentrate on streamlining their operations. At land border points of entry, mandatory random testing remains unchanged. Unless excused, travelers who do not meet the criteria for being fully immunized must continue to test on Days 1 and 8 of their 14-day quarantine.
