Canada Ends Ban on Travelers From 10 African Countries

As of April, fully vaccinated individuals no longer need to submit any pre-departure tests and this is the only step needed to enter the country. 

Canadian officials consider individuals fully vaccinated if at least 14 days have passed after your final vaccine dose of nine accepted vaccine types. 

Those who are unvaccinated or partially vaccinated remain barred from entering Canada until at least July. 

Similar to other ports of entry around the world, travelers may be randomly selected for COVID-19 testing upon arrival. Canada has adopted this testing mechanism since February at select airports, including Vancouver International Airport (YVR), Montreal-Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport (YUL) and Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ).
