Arriving into Canada

What you'll learn on this page:

International arriving passengers

As of April 1, 2022, fully vaccinated travellers no longer need to provide a pre-entry COVID-19 test result to enter Canada. 

Travellers arriving to Canada from any country, who qualify as fully vaccinated, may be randomly selected for arrival testing. Travellers selected will not be required to quarantine while awaiting their test result.  

At Toronto Pearson, arrivals testing is available at both Terminal 1 and Terminal 3, administered by Switch Health.

Travellers exempt from testing:

  • Children who are 4 years of age and younger
  • International travellers arriving in Toronto via a domestic flight (e.g. Hong Kong-Vancouver-Toronto), will have tested at their original point of entry into Canada and do not need to test again

A limited number of other exemptions are available, which can be clarified by the Government of Canada.

Before arriving at Toronto Pearson

Review the Government of Canada Flying to Canada checklist to determine if you can travel to Canada.

  • Assess your quarantine plan (if necessary)
  • Use the Advanced CBSA Declaration feature within ArriveCAN online to fill in your customs and immigration declaration. This can be done up to 72 hours in advance of flying to save you time when you arrive at the airport.
  • Complete your ArriveCAN submission using the latest version of the app
