COVID-19 self-testing kits are either nucleic acid-based testing (PCR tests) or antigen-based testing (rapid tests) testing kits that can be used at home. With at home PCR tests, you simply purchase a kit and set an online appointment with a health specialist to collect your sample. You then send the sample to the company so that it can be processed.

With rapid tests, you simply place a saliva sample or nasal swab into a chemical solution and wait for the results to show up. Results usually take less than 20 minutes. However, these tests are not as accurate as PCR tests and may give false positive or negative results, which means not all rapid antigen tests are approved for travel.

Rapid antigen tests are acceptable for travel if taken under the supervision of a professional and taken within 1 day of entering or exiting Canada.
