Travel Advisory No. 220



TRAVELERS FROM CANADA MUST BE FULLY-VACCINATED STARTING NOVEMBER 30​, 2021



To our valued passengers departing from Vancouver and Toronto:

All passengers departing from Canadian airports are now required to be fully-vaccinated, and must be able to show proof of vaccination.  

This new regulation imposed by Canadian health authorities applies to travelers ages 12 and older who are flying on domestic, transborder or international flights from any airport in Canada.

One is considered fully-vaccinated for COVID-19:
• 14 days after his or her dose of an accepted single-dose COVID-19 vaccine; and
• 14 days after his or her second dose of an accepted 2-dose series COVID-19 vaccine.

FOR THE ONGOING TRANSITION PERIOD UNTIL NOVEMBER 29:  
Travelers who are still in the process of being vaccinated may still travel, but only if they show a negative result from a valid COVID-19 molecular test taken within 72 hours of travel.

ONCE THE POLICY IS IN FULL FORCE, STARTING FROM NOVEMBER 30:
All travelers, 12 years and older, will be strictly required to be fully-vaccinated, with very limited exceptions to address specific situations such as emergency travel, and those medically unable to be vaccinated.  

A pan-Canadian standardized proof of vaccination for international travel is being developed in partnership with Canada’s provinces and territories. This will be available to travelers in digital formats, and may easily be recognized.
