    The Process of Returning to Canada

    March 28 in Mexico ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

    We got the following message -

    “Starting April 1, 2022, pre-entry tests will no longer be required for fully vaccinated travellers entering Canada by land, air or water.

    Until then, (we return on March 29), follow the pre-entry test requirements.

    Proof of a professionally administered or observed negative antigen test taken outside of Canada no more than 1 day before your scheduled flight or entry to Canada by land or water. The one day window does not depend on the time of day the test was taken or the time of your flight or entry. For example, if your flight is scheduled to leave or you enter by land any time on Friday, you could provide proof of a negative result from an antigen test taken any time on Thursday, or on Friday

    It must be administered or observed by a pharmacy, laboratory, healthcare entity or telehealth service. (The Troncones pharmacy will do it for 800 pesos or $50 Cdn each).
    The test must be authorized for sale or distribution in Canada or in the jurisdiction in which it was obtained.

    The test must be performed outside of Canada.

    Doesn’t make sense to pay for and take the test two days before it is formally over. Just give us the paper!

    But, on Monday morning we went to the Troncones pharmacy where the pharmacist immediately did the tests and in no time we got the results. We were both negative. We paid the 1600 pesos, got the certificates and left. Easy peasy.

    She told us that during the whole month of March, she never got a positive test result.
