Travelling to Canada and self-isolation

Current requirements to enter Canada

As of January 15, 2022, international students (18 years or older) can only enter Canada if they qualify as fully vaccinated travellers.

As of April 25, 2022, fully vaccinated travellers are no longer required to provide a quarantine plan upon entry. Furthermore, fully vaccinated travellers arriving to Canada are no longer federally required to do the following for 14 days after arriving:

  • mask while in public spaces;
  • monitor and report if they develop signs or symptoms;
  • quarantine if another traveller in the same travel group exhibits signs or symptoms or tests positive; and
  • maintain a list of close contacts and locations visited.

All travellers are still required to use ArriveCAN (free mobile app or website) to provide mandatory travel information within 72 hours of their arrival to Canada and/or before boarding a plane or cruise ship destined for Canada, including:

  • contact and travel information, and
  • vaccination information and proof of vaccination (if applicable).
