COVID-19 Testing Information

Government regulations require all travellers coming to Canada from abroad be tested prior to departure, upon arrival and on day 8 of their mandatory 14-day quarantine period. 

Please note that as of May 4, 2021, students are no longer required to complete testing after their 14-day quarantine period, in addition to the other testing requirements. 

Pre-Departure Testing


Arrival and Day 8 Testing

  • Travellers entering Canada at the land border will be provided two COVID-19 At Home Specimen Collection Kits: one to use on the day they arrive in Canada and another to use on day 8 of their 14-day quarantine. 
  • Travellers arriving by air will be required to take a test before leaving the airport and will also be provided with a COVID-19 At Home Specimen Collection Kit to use on day 8 of their mandatory 14-day quarantine. If you are arriving in Toronto, you must register here for your test in advance.
