As of January 7, 2021, Transport Canada requires all air travellers entering Canada from international destinations, five years of age and over, to present a negative or residual positive COVID-19 polymerase chain reaction (PCR) or reverse transcription loop-mediated isothermal amplification (RT-LAMP) test result before boarding. At this time, domestic flights do not require a test.

The test will supplement, not replace, the requirements for health questionnaires, temperature checks and face masks.

To comply with this regulation, travellers will be required to present a negative or residual positive PCR or RT-LAMP test at check-in and Canada Customs, taken within 72 hours from their scheduled departure time. Please allow extra time to check in.

It is each traveller’s responsibility to source and pay for their own valid PCR or RT-LAMP test.


Swoop has partnered with AZOVA to provide COVID-19 testing services around the world that meet the requirements for your destination and to provide a pre-flight COVID test travel clearance program.  Find out more info here.
