How this works

Before arriving at Vancouver International Airport, please follow 5 simple steps.

FlyClear™ On-Arrival Testing Process

Register for on-arrival testing

  1. Registration can be done in advance of your flight to YVR.
  2. Registration can be done once you land at YVR on your personal device.
  3. Registration can also be done in-person upon arrival.

REMINDER: As of November 21, 2020, international travellers are also required to use the ArriveCAN app to submit a quarantine plan and contact info before departing for Canada. This is not related to registration for the arrivals testing program.

REMINDER: As of January 7, 2021, international travellers are also required to complete a COVID-19 test within 3 days prior to departure for Canada and show proof of negative test results before boarding the plane.

Complete your test at the airport

  1. After exiting the customs hall and gathering your luggage, proceed to the testing area in your Terminal.
  2. If you have already registered online, proceed to the ‘Pre-registered’ line and prepare to show your FlyClear registration ID and passport / Nexus card. If you have not registered in advance, proceed to the ‘Test Registration’ line or use your phone to register for the test.
  3. Our staff will provide you a test requisition linked with your FlyClear™ ID.
  4. With guidance from onsite staff, proceed to the arrivals test booth at the testing area.
  5. Your sample will be collected and linked with your FlyClear registration.
  6. After having your sample collected, you must immediately proceed to your quarantine location as mandated by the Government of Canada.
