Travelling in & to Canada

Domestic Travel

  • All air travellers 12 years and over need to show proof of vaccination to board an aircraft in Canada. 
    • Visit the Government of Canada to learn more. Guests will be selected to show proof of vaccine with airlines and randomly selected at pre-board screening with CATSA.
  • Some other Canadian provinces and territories do have quarantine restrictions. Passengers are responsible for knowing the rules of their final destinations. Please consult your airline or the provincial government website of your destination, for additional information. 
  • There are no restrictions for travellers returning to Saskatchewan from another province. 

International Travel - Arriving

  • Testing:
    • All travellers 5 years of age or older, regardless of citizenship or vaccination status, must provide proof of a COVID-19 negative molecular test (PCR) result taken within 72 hours of a scheduled flight to enter Canada OR proof of a previous positive test result taken between 14 and 180 days.

      • If returning to Canada from the US, Canadians have found an affordable option, with select U.S. clinics and pharmacies offering free molecular tests through a government-funded program across all states. However, they stress that planning ahead is necessary to obtain these tests for free.
      • As of December 6, 2021 all air passengers entering the US will need to present a negative Covid test (NAAT or antigen) taken within 24 hours of departure. 
    • Before leaving Canada, verify that you meet the entry requirements for your destination country.
  • Vaccination:
    • Permanent residents of Canada who are fully vaccinated will need to download the ArriveCan app before they return to Canada. Then they need to upload their vaccination proof to the app before they return to Canada and show proof of a negative PCR test. 
    • These fully vaccinated travellers arriving from the US will not be required to quarantine upon arrival to Canada, however a quarantine plan must be prepared in advance in case it is deemed needed by the Canadian Border Services Agency.
    • For information about requirements for travellers who have been vaccinated against COVID-19, please visit the  Government of Canada for the most up to date information.
  • Quarantine & Isolation:
    • Fully vaccinated travellers who have been in any country other than Canada and the United States in the 14 days prior to entry to arriving in Canada, require additional arrival testing and quarantine.
    • Travellers arriving in Saskatoon directly from any country other than Canada and the United States will be given a molecular self-swab take home kit. The test must be completed and submitted within 24 hours of entering Canada. Travellers then must quarantine in a suitable place (such as your home) until a negative test result is received. They may take public transportation (for example connecting flights) to their place of quarantine.
