Canada To Ease Entry for Vaccinated Travelers

Canada will ease entry requirements for travelers fully vaccinated against Covid-19 on Feb. 28, including ending the requirement of molecular tests taken with 72 hours of departure.

Fully vaccinated travelers—those who have received the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine or both doses of an accepted two-dose vaccine— still will need to test upon arrival, but they will have the option of using a rapid antigen test taken a day prior to arrival. Those tests in general are cheaper and more readily available. The test must be administered by a laboratory, healthcare entity or telehealth service.

Canada also is resuming a randomized testing program for arrivals, but selected travelers will not be required to quarantine while awaiting results.
