Testing for Travellers


Testing for Pre-Travel

Manitoba COVID-19 testing sites are designed to offer testing to individuals who are experiencing symptoms or who have been directed to go for testing by public health officials. Individuals without symptoms who require a test for the purpose of pre-travel continue to be advised to seek testing at a private facility. For information on where to access testing for outbound travel, please visit: https://www.biomb.ca/covid-19-testing.

Individuals without symptoms of COVID-19, including those fully immunized, travelling to or returning to, a First Nations or Indigenous and Northern Relations community can seek testing within three days of travel at no cost.


Domestic Travellers

Asymptomatic testing is no longer recommended for domestic travellers.

All travellers, unless exempt in the orders, must observe the full 14-day self-isolation (quarantine) period regardless of symptoms. If symptoms develop they should get tested and follow guidance in the Isolation for Individuals with Symptoms and/or Waiting for COVID-19 Test Results factsheet: manitoba.ca/asset_library/en/covid/factsheet-isolation-selfmonitoring-recoveringhome.pdf.  


International Travellers

International travellers must follow self-isolation (quarantine) and testing guidance outlined in the Federal Quarantine Act.
