COVID Testing for Domestic Travel (Within Canada)
If your departure and final destination are both within Canada, you do not require a COVID test to travel. However, the Government of Saskatchewan is recommending that residents get tested as soon as they return from out-of-province.
Also, some provinces do not allow visitors or have a mandatory 14-day self-isolation period for domestic travellers from Saskatchewan. Learn more here: https://time-to-travel.ca/where-canadians-can-travel-now
COVID Testing for Outbound International Travel
Many countries require a negative COVID-19 test for entrance. It’s always best to get the latest information for testing requirements – including the time requirement and type of test (molecular or antigen) – directly from the country you are travelling to. You can also get some information from the International Air Transport Authority’s interactive map: https://www.iatatravelcentre.com/world.php
If you are travelling to a country that requires a COVID-19 test, you will need to provide proof of that test here at YQR even if you are connecting to another airport before leaving Canada.

COVID Testing for Inbound International Travel
If you are arriving to Canada from an international destination, the Government of Canada requires you to have a molecular COVID-19 test 72 hours before your scheduled flight. You will then be required to take another COVID-19 molecular test when you land and isolate in a government-approved hotel in the first city you land in until the results from that test come back negative. Currently, the only four cities approved for international arrivals are Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, and Montreal.

Once you have received the second negative COVID test, you may proceed onto your final destination to finish your 14-day self-isolation period.
