The traveler must have a valid pre-arrival COVID-19 molecular test result taken no more than 72 hours before their scheduled flight or their arrival at the land border crossing, or a previous positive test result taken between 14 and 180 days before departure to Canada. Antigen tests, often called “rapid tests,” are not accepted.
  3. The candidate must be asymptomatic.
  4. Traveler must submit their mandatory information via ArriveCAN, including proof of vaccination in English or French and a quarantine plan.
  5. The traveler must be eligible under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act.
