Transport Canada to suspend vaccine mandates for some travel in Canada as of June 20th, 2022

As of June 20th, 2022 the Canadian government will drop the requirement that domestic and outbound international travellers be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
  • Foreign nationals coming to Canada will still be required to be vaccinated under the new rules, unless they meet one of the criteria for exemption.
  • All passengers will continue to have to wear face masks.
If you're travelling internationally, be sure to check the COVID-19 travel rules for your destination. While the Transport Canada rules on vaccine mandates are expected to be lifted, some countries, such as the United States and Australia, still require foreign tourists to present proof of vaccination.

Vaccine mandates also remain in place for passengers and crew travelling on cruise ships that dock in Canada.


Unvaccinated Canadian citizens and permanent residents returning to Canada are still subject to quarantine and testing requirements.

If you're an unvaccinated traveller returning to Canada, you're required to provide proof of a negative molecular test, such as a PCR test taken within 72 hours of your scheduled flight or land entry into Canada. Unvaccinated travellers can also show proof of a negative antigen test taken the previous day, but the test has to be either administered or observed by a pharmacy, lab, health-care entity or telehealth service.

Unvaccinated travellers will also be subject to a COVID-19 test on arrival. The test may be done on-site at an airport or travellers may be given a test kit to complete at home. Upon arrival, unvaccinated travellers must also quarantine for 14 days and take another COVID-19 test on day 8 of quarantine.
