Changes to Border Restrictions:
Effective April 1, the federal government no longer requires a pre-arrival test for vaccinated travellers. This streamlines the process for fully vaccinated travellers and means that you will no longer need to coordinate a COVID-19 test before returning home. You may be selected for random testing on arrival.
For more information on protective measures currently in place, visit the Government of Canada’s COVID-19 web page.
It is important to remember that when travelling internationally, your destination may still require a negative COVID-19 test before arrival. Please check with your destination for the latest rules.
Masks are still required at the JA Douglas McCurdy Sydney Airport:
The JA Douglas McCurdy Sydney Airport is a federally-regulated facility, therefore masks are still required to be worn while inside the terminal building until further notice.
Terminal access is no longer restricted to passengers and employees - those dropping off, or picking up friends and loved ones at the airport are permitted to enter the terminal, providing they wear a mask at all times while in the terminal.
