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:
  • on arrival in Canada, while at the airport; and
  • later during their mandatory quarantine period in either a designated quarantine facility or at a suitable place of quarantine.

Before leaving the airport, travelers will be provided with a COVID-19 test kit or instructions for taking their test later during their mandatory 14-day quarantine period.
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.
After taking the arrival test at the airport, travelers will proceed to their government-authorized accommodation for their 3-night stay. Following the 3-night mandatory stay travelers will still have to complete the remainder of the mandatory 14-day quarantine at a suitable place of quarantine.
Any traveler who refuses to take a COVID-19 test on arrival at the airport may be subject to a fine of up to $3,000.
These travelers would also be required to go to a federal designated quarantine facility to take a COVID-19 test and receive a negative test result, to continue their onward travel to complete the rest of their 14-day quarantine.
Any travelers who present with symptoms of COVID-19 on arrival will be directed to a federal designated quarantine facility or other suitable quarantine location.
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. This exemption addresses the potential for residual positive tests given that individuals can continue to test positive up to three months after they have recovered and are no longer infectious. These travelers will also be exempt from the mandatory 3-night stay at a government-authorized accommodation, but must still quarantine for 14 days at a suitable place of quarantine.
These new measures are in addition to existing mandatory pre-boarding and health requirements for air travellers which include:
  • pre-departure testing;
  • refusing boarding for anyone with symptoms of COVID-19 unless they have a medical certificate stating that their symptoms are not COVID-19 related;
  • temperature screening and health check questions; and,
  • wearing masks on board flights to Canada.

On the mandatory 3-night stay at a government-authorized accommodation
As of February 21, 2021, at 11:59 p.m. ET, all air travellers, with limited exceptions, will also be required to reserve and stay in a government-authorized accommodation for up to three nights, at their own cost, while they await the results of their COVID-19 molecular test.
Canada’s hotel community is supporting public health efforts to prevent further spread of COVID-19 in our country by providing accommodation for the mandatory 3-night requirement for air travelers to Canada.
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.

      Effective 15 February 2021, passengers who have been in or transited through Angola, Argentina, Bolivia, Botswana, Brazil, Burundi, Cape Verde, Chile, Colombia, Congo (Dem. Rep.), Ecuador, Eswatini, French Guiana, Guyana, Lesotho, Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Portugal, Rwanda, Seychelles, South Africa, Suriname, Tanzania, United Arab Emirates, Uruguay, Venezuela, Zambia or Zimbabwe in the past 10 days are subject to quarantine for 10 days. They must have a confirmed hotel accommodation for 10 days before departure.
      - This does not apply to military personnel with an exemption letter from the Ministry of Defence.
      A) PLF - Passengers who declare that they have been in or transited through a red-listed country in the last 10 days:
      • Passengers who declare they have been in a red-listed country in the last 10 days will be prompted to book a managed quarantine service (MQS) hotel and testing package and enter the booking details on their PLF. They will not be able to complete the PLF unless they enter these details on the PLF.
      • Therefore, any passenger that has been in a red-listed country should have MQS details, and this will be clearly displayed on the first page of the PLF. See examples attached.
      • Some passengers may declare they have been in a red-listed country in the travel history section of the PLF, but mistakenly state they have not been in a red-listed country in the last 10 days when asked the question. This will mean there will not be MQS details for such passengers. Where this is the case, the passenger may be denied boarding.
      • Carriers will not be held liable if the passenger deliberately conceals (fails to declare) on their PLF that they have been in a red-listed country in the last 10 days.
      • 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.

      E) Very limited exemptions from managed hotel quarantine
