Whether flying into Canada or driving into Canada, there are several requirements that must be met before entering Canada.  This includes providing a negative test result for COVID-19.

As of February 22, 2021, all air travellers, with some exceptions, will be required to take a COVID-19 molecular test when they arrive in Canada before exiting the airport, and another toward the end of their 14-day quarantine period. With limited exceptions, air travellers, will also be required to reserve prior to departure to Canada, a 3-night stay in a government-authorized hotel. Travellers will be required to stay at their reserved hotel for up to 3 nights, at their own cost, while they await the results of their arrival test.


Further testing and quarantine requirements come into effect on February 22, 2021.
