Travelers arriving to Canada from any country, who qualify as fully vaccinated, may need to take a COVID-19 molecular test on arrival if selected for mandatory random testing. Those selected for mandatory random testing are not required to quarantine while awaiting their test result.
Partially or Unvaccinated International Travelers
If partially or non-vaccinated, proceed to 14 day quarantine. If you have no symptoms and your second test taken after 8 days after arrival in Canada results come back negative, you may exit quarantine once you have completed the mandatory 14 day quarantine. Please read, learn and understand the Canadian requirements here. Information on testing services in Alberta can be found here.
