On January 29, 2021, the Government of Canada announced additional restrictions on international travels to Canada by commercial passenger flights.
The new restrictions are in addition to the existing measures. We strongly recommend that travellers consult with the Government of Canada before making the trip.
The new restrictions are as follows:
- As of January 31, 2021, flights to and from Mexico and Caribbean countries are suspended until April 30, 2021.
- As of February 3, 2021, all international flights must arrive at one of the four Canadian airports: Montréal-Trudeau International Airport, Toronto Pearson International Airport, Calgary International Airport, and Vancouver International Airport. This also applies to private flights.
- All travellers arriving in Canada by air must quarantine at a hotel approved by the Government for 3 nights and take a COVID-19 test, at their own cost.
The above new restrictions do not apply to the ones who enter Canada by cars, trains, or other transportation. However, the Government of Canada is going to introduce more measures to control those situations.
Please note that you must still present a qualified negative COVID-19 test result before you can board an airplane.
You may also have to follow additional restrictions implemented by the provincial or territorial government after entering Canada.
