April 1: The Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC)  has lifted the pre-arrival COVID-19 testing requirement for fully vaccinated travellers. Passengers may still be subjected to random PCR testing at the airport, and travellers will still be required to use the ArriveCAN App to enter their proof of vaccination.

Requirements for unvaccinated or partially vaccinated travelers are not changing. Unless otherwise exempt, all travellers 5 years of age or older who do not qualify as fully vaccinated must continue to provide proof of an accepted type of pre-entry COVID-19 test result.

See COVID-19: Travel, Testing and Borders for all current Canadian travel requirements.

Close Contact of a COVID-19 Case

If you are a close contact of a COVID-19 case who had recently returned from international travel, you may be recommended by public health to complete a COVID-19 test. Book a test online, or call Health Link at 811.

If PHAC contacts and asks you to book a COVID-19 test, please call Health Link at 811.

COVID-19 Testing

Private testing is available, for a fee, for testing related to travel.

If you require COVID-19 testing outside of the public testing program, a variety of fee-for-service options are available through the private sector, including DynaLIFE Medical Labs, Numi Health, Equity Health Services and some pharmacies.

Provincial Requirements

The Government of Alberta currently imposes no additional travel restrictions upon international travellers to Alberta.

Travel exemptions (including Industry Travel Exemptions) from the provincial government are no longer required.
