Travelers arriving by air
As of February 21, 2021, at 11:59 p.m. ET, air travellers, unless exempted, will be required to take a COVID-19 molecular test:

All air travelers, unless exempt, will also be required to stay in a government-authorized accommodation for up to three nights while they await the results of the COVID-19 molecular test they took on arrival.
Travelers must reserve their accommodation prior to departure to Canada and pay for the cost of their 3-night mandatory stay.
Travelers must present proof of having reserved and pre-paid for their accommodation through ArriveCAN. Travelers will also be required to submit a more stringent quarantine plan electronically via ArriveCAN prior to boarding a flight to Canada.

Travelers who provide proof of a previous positive test result taken between 14 and 90 days before departure to Canada in lieu of a negative test will continue to be exempt from testing on arrival and during quarantine.

Hotel booking information will be online as of February 18, 2021. There will be a number of hotels to choose from, located near each of the four international airports in Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto and Montreal.
Hotels listed for booking by arriving travelers for mandatory 3-night stays will be privately-owned hotels that have agreed to meet public health guidelines and selection criteria for the purposes of accommodating travelers while they await their COVID-19 test results.
Costs of these hotel stays may vary slightly at each location. The price will include costs associated with the room, food, cleaning, infection prevention and control measures, security and transportation.
Travelers who have their own car at the airport can drive themselves to their government-authorized accommodation. Those who do not have their own vehicle will take transportation provided by the hotel.
Travelers who receive a negative result from the test they took on arrival can leave the government-authorized accommodation to complete the remainder of the mandatory 14-day quarantine period at:
o their final place of quarantine; or,
o a federal designated quarantine facility if they do not have a suitable quarantine plan.
Travelers who receive a positive result from the test they took on arrival will move to a federal designated quarantine facility or other suitable location to isolate for the remainder of the 14–day quarantine period.

• Passengers who declare they have been in a red-listed country may only be conveyed to the approved MQS ports of arrival.
B) PLF - Passengers who declare on their PLF that they have not been in or transited through a red-listed country in the last 10 days:
• Passengers who declare they have not been in a red-listed country in the last 10 days are required to have a booking reference for post-arrival testing which they will undertake from private accommodation where they will be required to self-isolate for the first 10 days after arrival.
• Such passengers will automatically be prompted when they complete the PLF to enter a test booking reference number.
• Such passengers may be conveyed to any port of arrival.
C) PLF – Checks for services scheduled to arrive at all ports other than designated MQS ports of arrival:
• Ensure no passengers are permitted to board if they have declared on their PLF that they have been in a red-listed country in the last 10 days.
• When checking PLFs look for whether the passenger has declared that they have been in a red-listed country in the last 10 days. If they have, they should be denied boarding.
• The grounds to deny boarding is that the passenger would not be permitted to enter the UK on arrival if they are not a resident national, and the operator would be committing an offence to convey them.
D) PLF – Handling of passengers who claim they are exempt from MQS or testing:
• Some limited exemptions apply for MQS and post-arrival testing. The carrier may permit passengers who do not have such details on their PLF to board if they have a reasonable belief the passenger has a reasonable excuse for not booking a test or is exempt.
