There are new travel measures being taken to help limit the spread of COVID-19 and its variants in Canada. The Canadian Government has kept the narrative that they strongly advise all Canadians to cancel or postpone any non-essential travel plans outside of Canada. Those who decide to travel by air outside of Canada for any non-essential reasons will face consequences when they return to Canada. For those traveling to Canada there are new requirements for air travellers such as a required hotel stay.

New Requirements for Traveling to Canada

Those who are travelling to Canada must provide proof of a negative COVID-19 molecular test that was taken up to 72 hours before their scheduled departure time.

Travellers must present proof of having reserved and pre-paid for their accommodation through ArriveCAN.

Travellers will still be required to complete the remainder of the mandatory 14-day quarantine after their mandatory hotel stopover.” – Source: IRCC
