See June 21, 2021 Government of Canada news release for latest update: Government of Canada's first phase to easing border measures for travellers entering Canada

On Jan. 29, the Government of Canada announced further restrictions to non-essential travel.

All air travellers arriving in Canada will be required to take a COVID-19 molecular test on arrival and at the end of their mandatory 14-day quarantine at their own cost. Travellers must also reserve a three-night stay at a Government of Canada approved hotel while awaiting their results, at their own cost. Travellers will still be required to complete the mandatory 14-day quarantine under the Quarantine Act. See Flying to Canada Checklist.

Departing Alberta

An official global travel advisory is in effect.

Both the Governments of Canada and Alberta continue to advise against all non-essential travel outside of Canada and all cruise ship travel.

Some essential service workers are exempt from travel restrictions if they have no symptoms. Refer to the Government of Alberta for more information.

If you require proof of a negative COVID-19 test result prior to travel, all Albertans can access a new COVID-19 travel testing service offered by Dynalife Medical Labs for $150 per traveller.
