Although travel requirements might seem confusing at the moment, for the vast majority of travellers they are actually relatively straightforward and it is just a question of completing each of the steps involved.
We've summarised the requirements for travelling to and from Canada as we understand them as of 18 March 2022. They assume you are travelling from the UK, are fully vaccinated and have not visited any other countries 14 days prior to travel.
We have tried to be as comprehensive as possible, but we cannot account for all circumstances. Requirements are subject to change at any time and we do not take any responsibility for the information provided. You must make your own enquiries to satisfy yourself that you and your party can meet the entry requirements to match your intended travel arrangements.
If you're travelling with children, please read the advice towards the bottom of the page as requirements differ to adults.
For more general information on travelling this winter, please see our Winter 2021/22 FAQs.
To enter Canada, you will need to be able to show your:
- ArriveCAN receipt with letter I or V beside the vaccinated traveller's name
- Proof of vaccination, including paper copies
- Pre-entry test result (pre 1 April 2022 arrivals only)
- Other travel documents including your eTA
You may be randomly selected to take a mandatory test on arrival. If you are selected, you can continue to your accommodation and no longer need to quarantine while you wait for your results.
Tip: We highly recommend taking both digital copies on your phone and printed copies of all your required travel documentation, and printing the day before travel to ensure you have the most up to date versions.
Returning to the UK
As of 18 March 2022, you're no longer required to complete a passenger locator form or test on return to the UK if you're fully vaccinated.
Frequently asked questions about travelling to Canada this winter.
The ArriveCAN form requires an address where you could self-isolate for 14 days if you develop symptoms or test positive. We have been advised that you can use the first address that you'll be staying at.
As capacity at restaurants is limited, we highly recommend booking ahead of your stay. At popular resorts such as Whistler, it is always recommended to book ahead over busy periods.
