Can I travel to Canada from the UK?
The country opened back up to international travellers on September 7, 2021, after closing its borders in spring 2020.
The UK government added Canada to the green list for travel on August 26, meaning people do not have to quarantine when they return to the UK.
However, they must still take a Covid test before their flight home and a test a couple of days after their arrival.
Antigen tests are not accepted in Canada, so fully vaccinated travellers are only permitted to enter if they have had their second dose at least 14 days before departure.
Travellers must present proof of a negative PCR test, taken within 72 hours of their departure, as well as their vaccinated status via the ArriveCAN app.
What are the current Covid travel restrictions in Canada?
There are some coronavirus travel restrictions that remain in place when travelling between provinces and territories in Canada.
Some have set their own rules in place for international travellers, so it is best to check your destination or desired route before jetting off.
You can fly within Canada to other areas, but are still subject to the same rules as when entering the country.
Again, different rules apply to different places – so check the Canadian government’s website to find out about specific provinces or territories.
