Canada Will End Mandatory Entrance Testing

Canada's announcement comes in line with the multitude of countries we've seen easing entry restrictions for fully-vaccinated travelers to France, the US Virgin Islands, and many other destinations. Canada plans to get rid of testing requirements by the end of the month (before April 1st).

This easing of entry requirements will be valid for entry via both airports and land crossings, both of which currently require testing regardless of a traveler's nationality or vaccination status.

This comes as many parts of Canada have begun to move to remove the bulk of local COVID restrictions. Though the Canadian government will continue to randomly test incoming passengers and track variants, this is clearly a big step towards normalcy in traveling to Canada.

As with many other countries, Canada's easing of testing requirements only applies to fully-vaccinated travelers, which makes great sense considering their risk of bogging down Canada's healthcare system as an ICU patient in case of contracting COVID-19 is many, many times lower.
