Traveling to Canada: COVID-19 regulations

Since early 2020 the world has been in a state of upheaval due to the COVID-19 virus. By means of regular updates Nature Trek Canada has kept its travelers informed.

From February 28, 2022, the following measures will be in effect for international travelers

  • All travelers (12 years and older) must be fully vaccinated to enter Canada (Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca or Janssen.
  • Children under the age of 12 AND traveling with fully vaccinated parents do not need to be quarantined upon arrival.
  • Your last dose must have been received at least 14 days before departure to Canada.
  • You must not show any COVID-19 symptoms when you board the airplane.
  • You must provide:
    (1) a negative COVID-19 test taken up to 72 hours before departure (PCR, NAT, NAAT or RT-LAMP) OR
    (2) a rapid Antigen test taken 24 hours before departure.
  • Upon arrival in Canada, you may be randomly selected for a PCR test. After that test you do NOT have to quarantine until the test results are known.
  • You must also upload the details of your vaccination(s) to ArriveCAN.
    You must do this 72 hours before arriving in Canada via This information must be in English (or French). If the information on your vaccination certificate is not in English or French, then the information must be translated by an official translation agency. You must show both the original and the translation upon arrival in Canada.
  • In addition, you must also complete your quarantine plan via the ArriveCAN app in case your registration is not approved.


We have prepared this information as carefully as possible but encourage you to verify it via and determine-fully

What became clear to us during 2 years of COVID measures is that:

  • By being proactive and clear, Nature Trek Canada travelers know where they stand. This leads to positive communication and a smooth completion of every trip or arrangement.
  • Travelers who book through a travel organization (ANVR/SGR such as Nature Trek Canada) have more options to decide on their trip (investment) and can make use of the connections that the organization has – for example, Nature Trek Canada has been able to arrange with local operators that virtually ALL bookings (excursions, ferries, accommodation, domestic flights, etc.) could be canceled free of charge or transferred as vouchers to a future booking.
  • Nature Trek Canada represents the interests of every traveller. By being pro-active as an organisation, travelers still have to make decisions, but they do not have to go after information themselves.
  • As a small organization (3 permanent employees) we can be flexible and can spend enough time with each traveling party to reach a satisfactory completion of each travel arrangement.
