COVID-19 Boarding flights, trains and cruise ships in Canada

Vaccination requirements to board a flight, train or ship, starting October 30, 2021.

Mandatory vaccination to board

Vaccination is one of the most effective ways to fight COVID-19 and the Government of Canada is taking action to better protect the health and safety of travellers and to increase travel safety. It will also help to get as many Canadians vaccinated as possible.

Starting October 30, 2021: if you are 12 years of age or older, you will need to be fully vaccinated in order to board:

  • domestic or international flights departing from airports in Canada
  • VIA Rail and Rocky Mountaineer trains
  • non-essential passenger vessels, such as cruise ships, on voyages of 24 hours or more departing from ports in Canada, once voyages resume

Find out if you're ready to board

To board your flight, train or ship, if you are 12 years of age or older, you must:

  • have received at least 2 doses of an accepted COVID-19 vaccine or a mix of 2 accepted vaccines
    • or at least 1 dose of the Janssen/Johnson & Johnson vaccine
  • have received your second dose at least 14 days prior to the day you travel
    • Example: if your second dose was anytime on Thursday July 1, then Friday July 16 would be the first day that you meet the 14 day condition
  • have no signs or symptoms of COVID-19
  • bring official proof of vaccination with you for your trip
