Dear students and partners,
Effective January 7, 2021, at 12:01 a.m. EST, all air passengers five years of age or older will be required to test negative for COVID-19 before travelling from another country into Canada.
Documentation of a negative laboratory test result must be presented to the airline prior to boarding a flight to Canada. The test must be performed using a COVID-19 molecular polymerase chain reaction (or PCR) test and must be taken within 72 hours prior to the traveller’s scheduled departure to Canada.
Anyone who receives a negative test result and is authorized to enter Canada must still complete the full, mandatory 14-day quarantine. See the Government of Canada’s news release for more details.
All ILAC and ILAC International College students preparing for travel to Canada should consult our COVID-19 Student Safety Guide to ensure requirements for travel and quarantine in Canada have been met, or contact an ILAC representative with any questions.
