    Question. Me and my girlfriend are going to the PJ concert in Toronto at the Scotiabank Arena.
    We will be in Canada for a week, arriving the day before the show.
    Both are vacced. We know we can be asked to test at the airport ( right? ).
    About forms en apps:
    - We know we have to fill in the ETA form.
    Beside that, do we only need to use and fill in the ArriveCAN App?
    Thats it and I would also print off proof of vax as well to make it easier to show just in case. 
    This! I always print of a paper copy of everything I need when traveling. Just in case phone fails

    Aside from proof of vaccination no need to get anxious about anything else. If you forget or fumble the ArriveCAN app the border agents (land crossing) or the flight staff can help. My BIL and family returned by land and forgot to complete the ArriveCAN app form so CBSA just directed them to park on the side and get it done.
    To quote the 10C from Newsletter #8: "Please understand we have a lot of members and it is very hard to please everybody. If you are one of those unhappy people...please call 1-900-IDN-TCAR."

    Any chance for an 'Picture' in Toronto?
    Eddie/PJ on the 8th of sep in The Scotiabank Arena.

    You can’t complete the ArriveCAN app info until 72 hours prior to your trip, right? I just want to make sure I’m doing this correctly.

    You can put the traveler information now (passport and vaccine information), and then you put your trip details in within 72 hours is how I understand it. I successfully put in my traveler information a couple of days ago.

    Correct but even if you were to complete the form 15 minutes prior to driving up the border you’ll be fine. Nothing to stress over.

    There is one thing that people traveling to Canada should be aware of - random arrival testing.  As the rules stand today, anyone could be selected for a test.  If selected, which is about 1/20, you have to complete it by the end of the next day, and if it comes back positive you have to quarantine.  You don’t have to quarantine pending taking the test or getting the test results.  It’s low risk to be selected and to be positive but it’s not zero risk.  Is there a point to this random testing? Not clear.

    So if you're selected for testing and it turns out you're positive (and asymptomatic...if you've got symptoms stay home...not trying to turn this into another covid thread) you would be stuck in Canada until your quarantine is over?

    Yes for 10 days I believe which is 5 days longer than what is required for us to isolate now. 

    If it was me test the day you are travelling so no surprises and use the online testing site option for less hassle. Bring tests with you that are accepted for testing in Canada with you as well so you do not have to go out and buy them.

    Do non-residents entering the USA have to be vaccinated? - I'm pretty sure they do. "Free-dumb" convoy supporters tended to ignore this fact when criticizing protective measures up here.

    Safe travels everyone

    Pretty sure the government supplies and pays for the arrival test and they won’t accept one someone brings with them.

    Okey i understand the whole testing. But what i dont understand is why Canada doesnt allowed me as a dutchman to provide a Negative test here in The Netherlands like 48 hours before. The whole world has done that in Covid time

    So if you test positive, you have to stay in Canada for the full length of the quarantine? You can’t drive back across the border and quarantine in the US?

    I am not sure the penalty if you ignore getting the test or head south back across the border and ignore the quarantine. I would look into this if you are concerned though. I had to do the same research for Cali last year.

    Nevermind I found the answer. It looks like you can cross back over the border if you’re driving in a private vehicle (see the answer to the last question in the link)

    I am driving my personal vehicle up there, so if I did happen to get selected and then test positive, at least there is the possibility of coming back home to isolate instead of being stuck up there doing it, if approved by the proper officials.

    Yeah you have the possibility to drive back home, but what do they expect from people who come by plane? Its a joke how Canada is handling Covid. There is a big possibility that you will test negative at home and get Covid on a crowded plane in 16-24 hours ( dont know were people from all over the world will come from ). Surprise surpise in Canada

    Posted earlier but a refresher 
    randomly selected to test when we returned from Europe @ Pearson.  Went home, took a test the next day.  The follow up was just an automated call which came 3 days after I landed just asking if I had complied with the random testing, and if I was positive to isolate. Nothing else, didn’t ask if I was positive or negative just wanted me to confirm I took a test

    So if you're selected for testing and it turns out you're positive (and asymptomatic...if you've got symptoms stay home...not trying to turn this into another covid thread) you would be stuck in Canada until your quarantine is over?
    Yes for 10 days I believe which is 5 days longer than what is required for us to isolate now. 

    If it was me test the day you are travelling so no surprises and use the online testing site option for less hassle. Bring tests with you that are accepted for testing in Canada with you as well so you do not have to go out and buy them.
    So if you test positive, you have to stay in Canada for the full length of the quarantine? You can’t drive back across the border and quarantine in the US?
    This is my question. Doesn't seem to make much sense. 
    Nevermind I found the answer. It looks like you can cross back over the border if you’re driving in a private vehicle (see the answer to the last question in the link)
    I am driving my personal vehicle up there, so if I did happen to get selected and then test positive, at least there is the possibility of coming back home to isolate instead of being stuck up there doing it, if approved by the proper officials.
    Yeah you have the possibility to drive back home, but what do they expect from people who come by plane? Its a joke how Canada is handling Covid. There is a big possibility that you will test negative at home and get Covid on a crowded plane in 16-24 hours ( dont know were people from all over the world will come from ). Surprise surpise in Canada
    I’m not defending the rule.  Just sharing the fact that it exists.

    There is one thing that people traveling to Canada should be aware of - random arrival testing.  As the rules stand today, anyone could be selected for a test.  If selected, which is about 1/20, you have to complete it by the end of the next day, and if it comes back positive you have to quarantine.  You don’t have to quarantine pending taking the test or getting the test results.  It’s low risk to be selected and to be positive but it’s not zero risk.  Is there a point to this random testing? Not clear.

    Pretty sure the government supplies and pays for the arrival test and they won’t accept one someone brings with them.  
    How do they get them to you if you select the online method? 
    They give you a kit at the border and you use that kit for your online.

    .but if we are in Canada for only 1-3 days, we should take the opposite approach? Delay the test as long as possible as we’d be out of the country well before test results are returned? I’ve been thinking of staying an extra couple days, but being forced to isolate 10 days and not being allowed to return home  would be a hardship for me. (Edit, I’m entering by car)
