Know Before You Go
Travellers Entering Canada
The Government of Canada is prioritizing the health and safety of everyone in Canada by taking a risk-based and measured approach to re-opening our borders. Thanks to the hard work of Canadians, rising vaccination rates and declining COVID-19 cases, the Government of Canada is able to move forward with adjusted border measures. All travellers 12 years of age plus 4 months and older boarding international flights and trains need to be fully-vaccinated, complete details here.
Travellers must be fully vaccinated: a traveller must have received, and show proof of, the full series of a vaccine — or combination of vaccines — accepted by the Government of Canada at least 14 days prior to entering Canada. Currently, those vaccines are manufactured by Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, AstraZeneca/COVISHIELD, and Janssen (Johnson & Johnson).
Upon your entry to Canada by air or at a land border crossing, the border services officer may notify you that you’ve been randomly selected for a mandatory arrival test. As a fully vaccinated traveller, you can travel to your destination, including on connecting flights, without waiting for your arrival test results (if selected for testing).
Children under 12 years old, travelling with fully vaccinated adults, will continue to be exempt from quarantine, without any prescribed conditions limiting their activities. This means, for example, they no longer need to wait 14 days before attending school, camp or daycare.
Travellers must be continue to:
- Be asymptomatic and be admissible under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act.
PCR tests are available at Hummingbird Mobile Health in downtown Whitehorse. Tests results are available within 24 hours and are internationally recognized. Bookings are required and can be made here. Hummingbird Mobile Health has a physician consultant who signs off on the appropriate paperwork that the other national government require in addition to the test result. They provide this document in addition to a travel certificate (hard copy/email). Learn more about the changing border measures.
