Below are new mandatory requirements for persons entering Canada. Since Air Canada travels on Sundays, it means that testing has to be done on Thursdays. It also means that everyone travelling on that Sunday to Canada as well as other destinations would have to be tested on the Thursday. The current testing timelines shown seem tight but indications are that attempts are being made to increase testing capacity & resources at MSJMC in order to accommodate this new requirement. Please pass this on to anyone that plans to travel or return from Antigua.
