Proof of vaccination is required for all travelers entering Canada, regardless of their country of origin.

In order to protect Canadian citizens from the risk of COVID-19, Government requires all travelers to provide proof of taking accepted vaccines in Canada. This requirement applies to visitors with visas, study visas and work permits. Permanent residents and returning citizens are also required to show evidence of approved vaccines in order to enter Canada from another country. There are a number of vaccines that are accepted in Canada for international travel. In this blog post, we will list all of the accepted vaccines for travelers entering Canada in 2022!

Significance of verification of immunization in Canada:
Verification of inoculation is expected for all travelers entering Canada, no matter what their nation of beginning. This is a significant measure to shield Canadian residents from the gamble of COVID-19. The rundown of acknowledged vaccines might change over the long run, so it is critical to check with the Canadian government site; especially, travel.gc.ca for the most recent data.


The present moment there are numerous vaccines out there, yet not the vaccines are all acknowledged in Canada for travelers living or returning into the country. You want to have the right vaccine, whether you are coming into Canada for study, visit or moving as an extremely durable inhabitant. Residents are not excluded, everybody old enough should be completely inoculated!

Where to check list of accepted vaccines in Canada

The Federal Government has released official list of all the approved vaccines for travelers entering Canada, effective since December 15, 2021 for all travelers coming into Canada in 2022. Canada’s official travel website, travel.gc.ca has all information regarding mandatory travel advisory and information for first time and returning travelers to Canada. That website stated that Travelers are eligible to enter or return to Canada if they qualify as a fully vaccinated traveler.

Who is a fully vaccinated traveler?

To qualify as a fully vaccinated traveler to Canada, you must:

1. have received at least 2 doses of accepted vaccines in Canada for travel, a mix of 2 accepted vaccines or at least 1 dose of the Janssen/Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
2. have received your second dose (of accepted vaccines in Canada) at least 15 calendar days before you enter the country.

Example: if your second dose was anytime on Thursday July 1, then Friday July 16 would be the first day that you meet the 15 day condition.

3. have no signs or symptoms of COVID-19.
4. follow pre-entry testing and entry requirements.
5. upload proof of vaccination in ArriveCAN website.
6. complete your ArriveCAN submission and and have ArriveCAN receipt with letter I, V, or A beside your name.
7. complete arrival test and quarantine if selected.
8. monitor for signs and symptoms of COVID-19 for the 14 days after entry into Canada.
9. if you have symptoms of COVID-19, seek advice from local public health.

For more information about vaccination requirements, please see the Pre-entry testing and ArriveCAN requirements checklist on the government website. Now, back to the list of accepted vaccines in Canada.

Approved list of accepted vaccines in Canada

The following are best seven (7) vaccines accepted in Canada and consequently valid for use as approved COVID-19 vaccines for the purpose of travel to and within Canada:

  1. AstraZeneca/COVISHIELD (ChAdOx1-S, Vaxzevria, AZD1222)
  2. Bharat Biotech (Covaxin, BBV152 A, B, C)
  3. Janssen/Johnson & Johnson
  4. Moderna (mRNA-1273)
  5. Pfizer-BioNTech (Comirnaty, tozinameran, BNT162b2)
  6. Sinopharm BIBP (BBIBP-CorV)
  7. Sinovac (CoronaVac, PiCoVacc)

An update that to qualify as a completely inoculated traveler, you probably got, no less than 15 schedule days continuously you travel:

something like 2 portions of a vaccine acknowledged by the Government of Canada with the end goal of travel.
or on the other hand a blend of 2 acknowledged vaccines.
or possibly 1 portion of the Janssen/Johnson and Johnson vaccine.
Imagine a scenario in which your evidence of vaccine is in another dialect other than English.
In the event that your evidence of immunization isn’t in English or French, you really want an ensured interpretation in English or French.
Your confirmed interpretation should incorporate the stamp or participation number of an expert interpretation affiliation.
Keep both the first evidence of immunization and the guaranteed interpretation with you while you travel.
In the event that your evidence of immunization doesn’t meet the necessities, it will be all viewed as invalid. You won’t qualify as a completely inoculated traveler.
Likewise note that Canada don’t acknowledge fractional immunization or individuals who recuperated from COVID-19 with only one portion of supported vaccine.
Coronavirus Testing in Canada Airport
Contingent upon circumstances, most travelers will be expected to go through a COVID-19 testing in Canada after arriving from another country. At the point when that is the situation, if it’s not too much trouble, follow the headings you get on appearance to finish your test:

On the off chance that you were coordinated to a testing administration at the air terminal, you are expected to enroll with the testing specialist organization, and the supplier will gather your example; they will inform you of your test result in 72 hours or less.

If you are provided with a self-swab kit, use the instructions in the kit to complete it within 24 hours of entering Canada, and arrange for it to be picked up as directed in the kit.

Your arrival test results

Once you receive a negative test, proceed with your connecting flight to your destination of choice in Canada. Travelers with positive test results MUST quarantine and monitor for symptoms for 14 days after arrival. Children under 12 years of age need no testing or proof of vaccine.
