Canada expected to drop pre-arrival Covid testing

Thursday, 17 Mar, 2022 0

Canada is reportedly set to announce it will eliminate pre-arrival Covid testing for vaccinated arrivals. It will be lifted by the end of March, according to government sources.

Current rules require travellers to present proof of a negative antigen test taken within 24 hours of arrival or a PCR test taken within 72 hours.

Travel and business groups have been lobbying hard for an end to pre-arrival testing. “The current travel measures in place are a barrier to travel,” the Global Business Travel Association said.
