Starting November 30, 2021, Canadians or individuals who have right of entry, qualify as fully vaccinated travelers and who re-enter Canada within 72 hours of leaving, won’t have to provide a pre-entry molecular test result. This will also apply to their accompanying children under 12, regardless of whether the children are vaccinated.
