The list of quarantine hotels in Canada: Mandatory stay for air travellers

Canada has imposed more restrictions on travellers to Canada. Starting from Feb 21, 2021, at 11:59 pm, you must follow the new rules if you are travelling by air. One of the main changes is a mandatory three-night stay at a quarantine-hotel. Of course, you may only book a government-approved hotel. Continue reading to learn the new measures and explore the list of quarantine hotels in Canada.

What are the new measures for air travellers?

Air travellers to Canada must take the following measures (exceptions apply):

  1. Travel to Canada only if you are exempt from travel restrictions (e.g. certain Canadians’ family members).
  2. Install ArriveCAN.
  3. Book an approved quarantine hotel room for three nights before your departure.
  4. Register the proof of booking in ArriveCAN
  5. Take a COVID-19 molecular test in less than 72 hours before arrival in Canada. Do not take a rapid test!
  6. Have a 14-day quarantine plan in place and register it in ArriveCAN.
  7. Travel to Canada only if you have taken all the previous steps and your COVID-19 test is negative.
  8. At the time of arrival, give another COVID-19 molecular test at the airport.
  9. Stay at the quarantine hotel for three days.
  10. Complete your 14-day self-isolation either in the same hotel or elsewhere.

Of course, if you take all these steps and your airport-COVID-19-test is also negative, then you may step out of quarantine.
