Adjustments to Canada’s border and travel measures

The Government of Canada announced upcoming adjustments to Canada’s border measures. This backgrounder provides additional context to support travellers in understanding COVID-19 testing and vaccine requirements, as well as other border measures, which are an important part of Canada’s response to the global COVID-19 pandemic and serve to protect the health and safety of all Canadians.

Effective November 30, 2021,  fully vaccinated individuals with right of entry to Canada, who depart and re-enter the country within 72 hours of leaving Canada are exempt from providing a pre-entryCOVID-19 molecular test result. This exemption isonly for trips originating in Canada taken by fully vaccinated Canadiancitizens, permanent residents or individuals registered under the Indian Act, who depart and re-enter by land or by air and candemonstrate they have been away from Canada for less than 72 hours.

As of January 15, 2022, certain groups of travellers, who are currently exempt from entry requirements, will only be allowed to enter the country if they are fully vaccinated with one of the vaccines approved for entry into Canada. These groups include:

 Individuals travelling to reunite with family (unless they are under 18 years of age if travelling to reunite with an immediate or extended family member who is either fully vaccinated or a Canadian citizen, permanent resident, or person registered under the Indian Act.)

 * International students (18 years of age and over)
 * Fully vaccinated students will be allowed to attend any provincially or territorially designated learning     institution in Canada.
 * Unvaccinated students under the age of 18 must attend a designated learning institution with a COVID-19 readiness plan approved by the province or territory where the school is located.
 * Professional athletes and their support staff, and amateur athletes.
 * Individuals with a valid work permit, including temporary foreign workers, outside of agricultural and food processing.
 Most essential service providers (including truck drivers, emergency service providers and marine researchers).
