COVID-19: New Travel Rules Come Into Effect In Canada – Details

CANADA: BlogTO  – 22 February 2021

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has made it abundantly clear that now is just not the time to travel, but new restrictions come into effect today (22 Feb 2021), for those who, for whatever reason, have to leave the country during a global pandemic.

Starting today, all international travellers entering Canada will be required to undergo a mandatory three-day quarantine period at an approved hotel while waiting for polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test results.       

Travellers are now required to receive a PCR test upon arrival in the country, and, unlike rapid testing, PCR tests take multiple days to process — which explains the three-day duration of the hotel stay.
