Canadian government announced that as of February 21, 2021, travellers, unless exempted, are required to reserve a government-authorized hotel for 3 nights prior to departure to Canada. Travellers must present proof of having reserved and pre-paid for their accommodation through ArriveCAN. It is the responsibility of the traveller to ensure that you have a confirmed government-authorized hotel booking prior to boarding a flight coming to Canada.
- An unaccompanied minor or unaccompanied dependent child is exempt from the 3-night hotel stay.
- If the child is accompanied by their parents, they are required to stay at a government-approved hotel for 3 days upon arrival.
- The 3 day hotel stopover is part of the 14 day quarantine period.
- Travellers will also be required to take another COVID-19 molecular test on day 10 of their 14-day quarantine. Travellers will be provided with a COVID-19 test kit and instructions before leaving the airport.
