    The amount of Canadians requesting to travel has increased rapidly as the country’s government says it will drop the pre-arrival PCR test for travellers. Travel agents have said the current rules have deterred Canadians from wanting to go on trips abroad. The change will apply to fully vaccinated individuals on February 28. 

    Health Minister Jean-Yves Duclos explained on Tuesday that travellers will be required to take a pre-arrival test for COVID-19. However, they can opt for an authorized rapid antigen test taken no more than one day before their scheduled flight or arrival at the land border. Antigen tests are much cheaper and more available than the PCR test. It also provides the results within minutes.

    On February 28, unvaccinated children under the age of 12 entering Canada with fully vaccinated parents won’t have to avoid schools, daycares, or other similar settings for 14 days. The mandates that have been in place have acted as a deterrent for many Canadians to travel.
