As of January 15, 2022, international students and work permit holders must be fully vaccinated to travel to Canada. Exceptions include international students under the age of 18 studying at approved institutions such as UBC. If you’re a temporary resident permitted entry into Canada without qualifying as fully vaccinated, you may take a connecting flight that is scheduled to depart within 24 hours of the departure time for your flight to Canada.
As of April 25, 2022, fully vaccinated travellers no longer need to provide a quarantine plan, and are no longer required to follow certain federal public health measures after arriving in Canada. It is still mandatory to complete the ArriveCan app. Unvaccinated children aged 5-11 accompanying a fully vaccinated caregiver are no longer required to provide a pre-entry COVID-19 test result. See the April 22 news release for details.
Travel restrictions, testing and quarantine requirements may change without notice. Visit COVID-19: Travel, testing, and borders for updates.
