Another travel rule lifted at Pearson Airport in Mississauga

Children ages five to 11 who are unvaccinated or partially vaccinated can now enter Canada via Pearson Airport in Mississauga without having to show a negative COVID-19 test.

Starting today (April 25), the federal government has lifted that restriction at Pearson and other airports in Canada, as long as children in that age group are accompanied by a fully vaccinated parent or guardian.

Pre-entry COVID-19 tests are still required for partially vaccinated or unvaccinated travellers ages 12 and older who are eligible to travel to Canada, Ottawa says.

Children under five years of age are not required to provide a COVID-19 test result.

The federal government has gradually lifted air travel restrictions for Canadian travellers and others entering the country over the past couple of months.

However, fully vaccinated travellers arriving at Pearson Airport and other airports in Canada must still wear masks while inside the airport.

Also, Ottawa notes that all travellers are still required to use the ArriveCAN app to upload travel and vaccination information within 72 hours of their arrival to Canada.

Fully vaccinated travellers who do not submit the information into ArriveCAN won’t be eligible for the fully vaccinated traveler exemptions.

According to the federal government, 81 per cent of Canadians are fully vaccinated.
