Government of Canada Lifts Remaining COVID-19 Travel Restrictions

Thursday, September 29, 2022

As of October 1, 2022, international travellers no longer have to be vaccinated against COVID-19 to enter Canada or meet COVID-19 testing, quarantine or isolation requirements. 

See Government of Canada Announcement

The Government of Canada announced that effective October 1, 2022, all travellers, regardless of citizenship, no longer have to:

  • submit public health information through the ArriveCAN app or website;
  • provide proof of vaccination;
  • undergo pre- or on-arrival testing;
  • carry out COVID-19-related quarantine or isolation;
  • monitor and report if they develop signs or symptoms of COVID-19 upon arriving to Canada
  • wear masks on planes and trains.

Cruise ship passengers are also no longer required to have pre-board tests, be vaccinated, or use ArriveCAN. A set of guidelines will remain to protect passengers and crew.

Although masks are no longer required, all travellers are strongly recommended to wear masks during their journeys. People should not travel if they have symptoms of COVID-19.

Although restrictions are being lifted for travellers, we will continue to have COVID-19 information available for travellers at
